I have an account at the Vanguard Group (mutual funds). If I login

with my account representative. The Web page for making an
appointment always shows me as being in the Mountain Time zone; but I
am in California, which is in the Pacific Time zone. The account
representative told me that Vanguard's Web technicians tested this
Web page from accounts in California and consistently get Pacific
This is not a new problem with SeaMonkey 2.48; I have seen this with
2.46 and earlier versions. Windows says I am in the Pacific Time

current time, which is 12:08pm.
Is there a time zone setting in SeaMonkey? Or does it ALWAYS use
the Windows setting for this?
I belong to several web sites that have their own time zone settings in
the account profile. In each case, I have to go into my account profile
and update it, because they ignore my own computer's settings. That's

Just as they store your name and address, they also store your time
zone. Mountain must be their default, which is strange since their home
office is in Valley Forge, PA.
