In Daily 55.0a1 and Earlybird 54.0a2 is the date format M/D/YY
In Windows 7 the setting is DD-MM-YYYY and so I want it in the Thunderbird's.
In February the format was correct in Daily and Earlybird.
I have already tried a empty profile, it doesn't help.
Is a setting changed?

You made me look.

I just opened 45.7.0 and 52.0b4 and the date format is MM/DD/YYYY in those versions on Linux, and M/D/YY in my Earlybird 54.0a2 and Daily 55.0a1.

It appears something changed, don't know how to set it back, or if we can.

It's through a silly change on Firefox/toolkit side. They use now the app built locale. If you want a other date format you need to use a localized build. A en-US build with an other locale file doesn't work. TB is trying to change this behavior, but this needs some time.

Thanks for the information.
I'm using the en-US version of Daily with a Dutch languagepack. There are at the moment no translations for the Windows versions of Daily.
I have to wait.
