Is there a setting hidden somewhere where I can force my preferred date format? Why do I have to contend with the dreadful date format when when visiting mozilla.org in english?

Hi!

Since most content is in English and search engines always link to the English version, I usually browse the english version of mozilla pages. But here on support in particular I have to contend with the pathetic date format where you can't tell which is day or month or year. So why can't I find a way to set the date format. Even the majority of tiny websites/forums have an option to specify the date format.

Probably because Mozilla is based in USA. I can't find anything in profile settings. FWIW, the date format I see is MM/DD/YY. On the General page in Firefox Options there is a setting "Use your operating system settings ... dates ..." I haven't used it until now because I dislike my OS settings as well.

It seems to me that mainly concerns what language variant should be loaded, if there are multiple. But in this case I explicitly choose the english site, so this setting doesn't have any relevance.
