This isn't an issue I can see on Ubuntu, I will try running OpenSUSE. I assume that this doesn't change after updating the filter list either? Are you using the distribution supplied Firefox package? Is it a new issue or was it always like that?

I can reproduce this using official Firefox 53 32-bit build on OpenSuSE 13.2 (distribution-supplied builds stopped at Firefox 50).

This appears to be a general issue with the 32-bit Firefox build - it is reproducible on both OpenSuSE and Ubuntu as long as you install the 32-bit build. It seems that nsIScriptableDateFormat implementation is broken, it will misrepresent dates despite being given correct parameters. However, seeing that nsIScriptableDateFormat is deprecated, I don't think that we can expect Mozilla to fix this. Intl.DateTimeFormat with work correctly in both 64-bit and 32-bit builds.
