Firedragon Timezone issue

I am currently using firedragon 115.0.2 (64-bit). The time and date on my laptop are set correctly.

I have a weird problem where some websites are using my current timezone CST (ie: messages.google.com), while others are using UTC (ie: webbrowsertools.com/timezone/). This has led me to miss an important meeting. Luckily just one so far.

I have disabled all plugins and the results have not changed. I have found a plugin to spoof my timezone. However this changes the ones that normally do work to the offset time. I cannot seem to find any settings in the about:config.

Not sure where else to look.

Thanks, this led me in the right direction.

there is a setting
privacy.resistFingerprinting.exemptedDomains where you can put in the websites that you want to override. I must have messed with this in the past as messages.google.com was there already.

I have added to ~/.firedragon/ firedragon.overrides.cfg

defaultPref("privacy.resistFingerprinting.exemptedDomains", "mail.google.com,messages.google.com,webbrowsertools.com");

I will have to pay attention in the future to which websites have to incorrect time and will then have to add them to this file.
