… can't find it following the Username -> Profile menu
Click on your user name, select "User Control Panel", then select the tab labeled "Profile"". Works here (Firefox on macOS).

Thanks, Walter, but although "Profile" is present, the OS setting definitely does not exist there under Windows 10 using Firefox or Waterfox. I'll try other browsers and report back...

It also is nowhere to be found under Windows 10 and Internet Explorer. There seems to be no point in trying other browsers...

I have the same issue as the person above - can't change the os I use in my profile - I put the wrong one by mistake when I registered for the forum.
I tried changing it on Firefox via Mac OS and Safari via Mac IOS, but don't see any options to change it.
my OS should read Linux/Debian
Thank you.
