Hi, Can anyone tell me how to set TB to display 12 hour format (instead of 24 hour) in the emails and Lightning.
I have looked around everywhere and can't find a solution that I can follow.
By the way, I am running Linux Mint (not windows) and it is using my perferred format but TB is not following, as I see in some posts.
Any help would be great. Thank you.

The time and date format are usually picked up from your OS but you can set them manually by editing settings in about:config
Take a look at http://kb.mozillazine.org/Date_display_format for instructions.

I hope this helps.

Thanks for the advice but it's all too hard for me, just can't understand it. I guess TB will come up with a fix sooner or later as I see it's listed. :)
