You are using an old insecure version of Firefox. Time to update.

Firefox uses the "time" that as it is set in the Windows operating system.

You need to update a wide variety of things actually.

First, your Firefox. It is critically out of date, leaving you EXTREMLY vulnerable to MANY known security issues. Update Firefox to the latest release

Then, update your plugins. https://www.mozilla.org/plugincheck/

Finally, I bet Windows is out of date too. Update that: windowsupdate.microsoft.com/

Finally, date and time are controlled by your computer, not Firefox.
