>From what I can tell, the date/times are obtained from the system
locale. Looking at the code in calTimezoneServer.js bears this out & so
far I see not method to change the option from within lighting. You can
try the calendar user & dev newsgroups & ask there:
Just add news.mozilla.org as an newsserver & subscribe to both
mozilla.support.calendar and mozilla.dev.apps.calendar - I'd also
recommend subscribing to mozilla.support.thunderbird and
mozilla.dev.apps.thunderbird as well.
The folks in those newsgroups will probably be able to assist much
easier than anyone on this list can.
It's a good question & if you do figure out how to do it, please post
back with the answer.
These might also be of interest/help:
System|Help and Support| - search on LC_TIME and that will bring up the
links to info coreutils (you can read from a terminal: 'info coreutils'
but it's difficult).
