Description

The calendar widget is operating in 12 hour mode and this makes it impossible to schedule events post meridian.

Even using the slider bar to select the second 02:00 results in a 2AM event.

24 hour times entered directly into the time textbox are converted to 12-hour clock times before noon.

on it.

One question though, 02:00 is 2AM on a 24 clock so isn't that what you'd expect?

Is this a problem only on prod or is it the same on dev?

On my local copy I was able to schedule an event in London at 17:00 (5PM) perfectly fine. At least it looks fine when I'm looking at it in the event manager.

I entered it as 17:00 using the slider

When I hover over the words "about an hour from now" it shows "... 10:00am UTC-0700" in the tooltip which means it's UTC minus 7 hours which means it's 10am where I am.

This has been fixed on dev. 

Pushing an update to stage/prod with https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=816739

I still find it confusing that the timezone is its own input field on the event editor. It would be much better to take away any mention AT ALL of timezones. The user selects a location and a local time for that location and don't have to worry about timezones at all. (remember, every location is defined as a name (e.g. London) and a timezone (e.g. US/Pacific).
