24hrs format for html inputs in Firefox
My system language on my linux machine is set to English, but as a German raised with 24-hour days, I simply cannot wrap my head around to get the 12-hours
pm format intuitively. By the time I learned that
am is in the morning and
pm is in the evening. But when it comes to
12:00 as the mid of the day and
0:00 in the night, I’m lost.
Of course I have already set the time format to 24-hours in my system settings (Ubuntu
Date & Time > Time Format set to
24-hour), but Firefox still uses the 12-hours format for html inputs with
As a solution you open about:config and set
<input type="time"> will use the 24h format!
