Can anyone advise?

My google-fu hasn't revealed anything that illuminated this specific matter.

If you weren't so cute, cuddly and lovable I would call you a pain-in-the-proverbial :-).

You are using Thunderbird V60.0 (and FF V60.0) [see attached] -- so why didn't you mention this fact? And while we are on the subject, which OS are you using, openSUSE (and which version)? :-)

The latest available version, in the openSUSE repositories, of Thunderbird for Leap 42.3, Leap 15.0 and Tumbleweed is version 52.9.1 and there is no date format problem, at least for moi, with 52.9.x.

So, how is it that you are using Thunderbird v60.0?

(OK, I know where you may have got it from -- I just downloaded v60.0 myself to see if I get the same date format problem [which is not evident in TB v52.9] -- and I am also (successfully) using FF 62.0. Will report after I install TB v60.0 in the next hour or so.)


OK, first off, you, Anton, switched to TB version 60.0 on 9/8/2018 (9 Aug) and that is when the formatting of the date stamp changed.

I am now writing this post using TB v60.0 and, as you can see above, I am not having this problem.

I suspect that you did not alter the new available option in the Preferences>Advanced>General>Date and Time Formatting where you need to change the formatting to Regional settings locale: <whereverUare> from the setting for U.S.A.

(And as an aside: what the heck are Mozilla doing to TB?! Why can't devs just leave something good alone and not &^$%#@ around with it!?)


There comes a time in the affairs of a man when he has to take
the bull by the tail and face the situation.
