My time zone is knocked down 3 hours ago, you can see it on the screenshot Did a restart with disabled Add-ons, did not help. Also on another computer on linux with the same firefox account. I ask for help.

This is likely caused by having enabled "Resist Fingerprinting" in Firefox. This places you in the UTC timezone apart from making other changes.


When Resist Fingerprinting is enabled then some items are spoofed (TimeZone: UTC, UserAgent: Firefox 78 ESR).

You can check this pref on the about:config page to see if Resist Fingerprinting is enabled and if this pref is user set (bold) reset to false via the right-click context menu.

  • privacy.resistFingerprinting = false

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can accept the warning and click "I accept the risk!" to continue.
