Several things could cause this.

Open your computers Time Manager. Make sure it is showing the correct time and timezone settings.

Are you using the atomic clock to keep the computers accurate?

My computer time settings is correct, time have a sync with time.windows.com server.

Reinstalling Flash player didn't solve this problem.

Thanks for help!

Then you got something fishy going on with your O/S and if you using VPN or Proxy this can also account for the different time zone.

How does that get changed other than in About:Config?
