Description

11 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X; en-US; rv:1.8.1.3) Gecko/20070309 Firefox/2.0.0.3
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.4; en-US; rv:1.9b3pre) Gecko/2008010304 Minefield/3.0b3pre

Date fields of certificate manager either DD/MM/YY or MM/DD/YY depending on the locality settings, which is confusing when referring to this field -like delete the oldest certificate- and working with multiple localizations of Firefox at the same time.

Having to have the fields to be DD Mon YY will be much more clearer

Fields affected certificate manager
* Expire On
* Issued On
* Expires On
* Not before
* Not after

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Path to sample field
1. Preferences -> Encryption -> View Certificates -> Authorities
2. Locate certificate 'Staat der Nederlanden Root CA' -> Double click
3. Watch fields Issued On and Expires On
different locales expect different date formats, that's the way things work.
