This is the same as bug 933775, but it was uplifted to mozilla-beta in early December.

Is the date correct on the device? Reproducible on other devices?

Yes, the date is 07/01/2014.
Reproducible on Samsung Galaxy Tab (Android 4.0.4) and Google Nexus 7 (Android 4.4)
Federico/gcp is there a code disparity on mozilla-beta and other branches for this?

The patch looks OK to me in mozilla-aurora and mozilla-beta, though the file itself is fairly different.

This bug has dates in the future. The bug you refer to had dates in the past (really, unix time 0). So it's not exactly the same, though the cause probably ain't too far away.

I guess the bug is here

The NotificationBuilder expects the when parameter as the number of millisecs since the epoch, whereas aDownload.startTime is the same time expressed in microsecs, so its the number it expects * 1000.

I can provide a patch tomorrow, since I don't currently have a beta checkout and I would like to test the patch before submitting.

This is the patch. I guess the bug affects only beta, since from aurora the when parameter is calculated in a different way.
