Steps to reproduce:

You can follow what I did by watching this video:

Select a date, check the filter and click apply to activate it.
Take a look at the string list -> it works

Edit the date
Apply the filter
Nothing changes

uncheck and check the checkbox
apply again
The string output changed

I edited the date a second time in the video, because apparently there weren't many changes between the first and the second date.
The third date makes it obvious -> way less strings after I recheck the checkbox

Actual results:

Pontoon only seems to apply the translation time filter, when I uncheck and check the checkbox before it, which is not apparent at all.

It took me some time to figure out, why the time filters, I tried, didn't change the output.

It's also very confusing, that 30 days, 7 days, 24h and 60mins are subtracted off the time of the last changed string, when the strings themselves tell you the amount of days/hours from the current time instead.
I wondered why an 11 days old string change was included, when I select last 7 days.
You should either make them use the last x days/hours since the current date or show absolute dates below each string instead of relative dates to avoid this confusion.

Expected results:

You could also implement a different feature that would be superior to the date filter:
An activity view like on Crowdin (take a look at the attached screenshot).

It groups string changes by Date (the day) and user.
And you can also filter by user, event type (suggestion, approval, deletion etc.) and language.
This view allows you to find strings that were changed since your last visit of the file (for translation) much easier.
And it shows a lot more information at once.

I'm also adding a note about the Activity feature to bug 1473760.
