I'm using Firefox Quantum and the day I installed it, everything was working great. But every since I've rebooted my PC, now I often get the error code SEC_ERROR_LIBRARY_FAILURE when I try to load pages, like Google. Please advise.

Could you try reinstalling the Beta?

If you haven't already switched from 32-bit Firefox to 64-bit Firefox, and you're considering it, please see this article first before doing that: How to switch from 32-bit to 64-bit Firefox. I just noticed the 64b, so never mind on the article.
