date function (shown in a text box for example) and load the webpage in mozilla
it works fine. if i then switch to a shell and run the unix date command to
system date and timezone even if i change the webpage or reload it. when i shut
down mozilla and restart it the same webpage will show the new system date and
timezone correctly (which it should have done BEFORE i restarted the browser)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. create a simple webpage with a text box which shows the current date/time
2. open a xterm window and change the system date/time/timezone
3. reload the webpage in mozilla. no changes. this is the bug.
4. close mosilla and restart it with the same webpage. the new
date/time/timezone is now visible.
bug shown as noted. the new date / time /timezone is not reflected in the
webpage until mozilla is restarted. the new Date() javscript doesnt read the
correct date/time/timezone every time its called.
mozilla should be reading the system date/time/timezone everytime a new Date()
This should be fixed ASAP. For critical software such as web based time and
billing software there is a gradual drift in mozillas date/time values the
longer it stays up even though the system clock is set using NTP correctly.
Isn't this a dupe of bug 127246?
