fixedsys font in options causes unreadable text on page

Running Firefox 52.0esr on pre-Win7 platform and seeing unreadable text. Here are some examples: a web page (https://www.gnu.org/software/coreutils/manual/html_node/kill-invocation.html) showing unreadable text and the view source display also partly unreadable - see 4 attachments. Some images show correct look versus incorrect look.

It took me a while to track this down to a change I made many years ago. I changed the options in Firefox for Monospace font to "Fixedsys" font (Tools|options|content| Fonts&colors, advanced). I had no problems (up to v25 and few latter versions) until I updated to Firefox 52.0esr. The solution is to change fonts, Courier New, seem to work fine now. I wrote this up in case anyone else comes across the issue as it is not that obvious when "Monospace font" applies the only clue that helped me solve it was when view source was garbled then I knew it was not a web page coding problem.

I am on a non-supported platform BUT is this a problem on Win7 and higher + Firefox 52 and higher or is just a quirk specific to my setup?

Firefox automatically upgraded itself to version 41 and now the Trusteer Rapport Endpoint Protection icon is no longer shown to the right of the address bar. It is still there and working in Internet Explorer. The same situation is happening on 2 PCs, both Windows 7 64 bit.

Surely Trusteer Rapport is a widely used feature - one would have thought a new release of Firefox would have been tested to work with it.
