I can't reach--not log in to--MIT's website with Quantum. This not an option. Any ideas? Else, sticking with 56. Not enthused by Chrome.

No version of Quantum so far will let me reach--just reach, not log into--MIT's website. No other websites, so far as I can tell, are affected. I cannot use Quantum if I cannot reach that site. Problem is unlikely to be the (Windows 7 Pro) firewall or the security software--has happened both with McAfee suite and Avast (free)--also running Malwarebytes in both setups.

Ideas appreciated. I'd rather update but if that means I can't work, then no dice. Frankly, somewhat disappointed in Firefox, which I have been using since it was Netscape.

Firefox 56.0.1 is causing fonts issue. Fonts are looking fuzzy and I tried whatever I can do it to fix it but the problem won't go away.

My browser was working fine without any issue but now this issue is coming up in latest versions of Firefox. Fonts don't appear the normal way & look ugly. I even downgraded to version 50 but of no use. I have seen a lot of tutorials about fixing fonts issue but none of them helped. This latest version of Firefox 56.0.1 doesn't show / support hardware acceleration option. In "Troubleshooting Information" for DIRECT2D (under Graphics) it says unavailable by runtime: Failed to acquire a Direct2D 1.1 factory

Any solution?

Firefox Only Keeps Today's & Yesterday's Browsing History

Using Firefox 56.0 (I don't like 57.0 Optimum, and will not change.), Firefox only keeps TODAY and YESTERDAY Browsing History. Again it only keeps TODAY and YESTERDAY browsing history. It's not deleting history upon closing out Firefox---it just doesn't keep more than a day's worth of browsing history. At strike of Midnight  each night Browsing history cleans out/changes upon opening a new Firefox browsing session what should be seen in history many days BUT only keeps Day 2 (Yesterday) and Day 1 (Today, new day).

I copied Places.sqlite file on from my desktop (Win 7)  on to my Surface 3 tablet that has FF 56.0 and no issues...I can see several days history. Happens only desktop system.

I have done virtually everything possible:

-My settings are are proper to Remember History, UNCHECKED Private Browsing Mode

-Deleted and replaced  Places.sqlite

-Renamed Places.sqlite (old and installed a new  Places.sqlite)

-Right-mouse clicked on  Places.sqlite to make sure it's not Read-only

-Wiped out all traces of Firefox 56.0 and reinstalled FF 56.0

-Downloaded the Add-on Maintenance Fix-Repair  Places.sqlite

-Made sure Norton 360 Security recognizes Firefox browsing (and temporarily disabled it right before midnight to see if that did anything -- not the a issue/cause).

-No Cleaner types are running

Again, this occurs at Midnight. I tried  testing to change my system clock to Midnight during the day for a moment to see what happens when system strikes midnight and when I open browsing history it sets everything to a new Day 1 and Yesterday (which is actually still current day) like it does at night. 

Maybe Something fishy is going on most likely in my About:Config that has to do with browser history and change of date.

Please note, I've seen nearly all the Firefox link fixes for this issue and other posts but nothing precisely that is like my issue. This is not an issue where there's an improper settings issue. Been through all that.

Thanks for any wise insightful help.
