#11275 new Bug report

FileZilla doesn't use my system date format (MacOS Sierra)

Description

This is similar to the closed ("worksforme") ticket for Windows 10 (https://trac.filezilla-project.org/ticket/9675 ), but I'm on MacOS Sierra 10.12.5.

In my System Preferences, I have the default language as "English (Canada)", and I have the default short date format set to YYYY-MM-DD, i.e. ISO 8601. This is also the short date format that comes up by default when selecting English (Canada).

My FileZilla Date/time format settings are set to "Use system defaults for current language", which I presume would be the YYYY-MM-DD that the system defines as the default for my localization.

FileZilla instead uses the DD/MM/YYYY date format that is 'traditional' in Canada. I have no idea where it's getting this from. Maybe its own internal database of date formats?

The fact that the FileZilla setting defaults to "Use system defaults for current language" suggests a technicality that DD/MM/YYYY is a default format for "English (Canada)", which is the localization selected in my system, even though my system's interpretation of the default date format for this localization to be different from FileZilla's.

Workaround: Select ISO 8601 from the FileZilla Date/time format settings.
