"Places" text on DDG is rendered backwards on Firefox v47.0, 64-bit (GNU/Linux)

I'm using Mozilla Firefox v47.0 (64-bit) on Ubuntu 15.10 GNU/Linux. For some reason the DDG "Places" suggestion text will be rendered backwards and it looks crazy. I've attached a screenshot for proof. Also, it's not just me, I found another person using the beta Servo browser engine (built by Mozilla) who is also having the same problem (see: https://github.com/servo/servo/issues/11936). Note that I'm not using the Servo engine, as I use the stock Gecko engine.

Unfortunately, this may be a Firefox issue in some way, as it doesn't affect Google Chrome v51.0 on Ubuntu 15.10. Any solution to this?
