Hello,

On MacOS 14.0(Sonoma) Firefox 118.0.2 (64-bit), facing the problem with web.whatsapp.com chat messages. The timestamps for the messages are displayed in UTC and not as per the system time(IST, in my case).

- web telegram shows correct timestamps, opened in same browser session - web whatsapp on Chrome shows correct timestamps - fingerprinting is set to false(was not touched at all).

Any idea what could be wrong? Thanks. -Sachin

This should be fixed in Firefox 119 (Bug 1856428).

If you have enabled "Resist Fingerprinting", set this pref on the about:config page to false to disable this feature.

Thanks for the reply. As seen in 3rd screenshot, it was never changed and is currently set to false.

Its showing correct timezone.

(new Date()) Date Tue Oct 17 2023 17:05:18 GMT+0530 (India Standard Time)

(new Date()).toString() "Tue Oct 17 2023 17:05:42 GMT+0530 (India Standard Time)"

Thanks.

Thanks! The issue is resolved in latest build 119.0.

Just curious, how was Telegram able to show correct timestamp(as per the Timezone) even with this bug present underneath. Was it using some other mechanism?

Thanks again for the replies.

The timezone may also be determined from the location of your IP address.
