Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Put the details above on a web page. 2.Load the page. 3.Whisper epithet Actual Results: The software puts the year in one place then looks for it in another. Expected Results: Used the same data specification for both routines? Any data collection web page that collects date and time automatically (eg for audit or sequencing purposes) will get corrupt data. I cannot use Firefox in house without an expensive and kludgy workaround that will take longer to write than I hope the bug will take to fix! Equipment would get double booked because prior bookings would end up in a different (random) year :(
Presumably you're referring to the fact that getYear() returns 104, that's because you should be using getFullYear() instead. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 22964 ***
