Posted this on StackExchange as well...

A year ago or so I created some 3D CSS animations. They are now no longer working after upgrading to Firefox 56. The preserve-3D appears to no longer be functioning, as the 3D elements all appear as one flat rotating line. More interestingly, if you go to the Developer Tools you can actually see the placeholder for the 3D element spinning around in 3D, but it just doesn't do it in the view port.

Did you try Firefox 57 Developer Edition or 58 Nightly to see if that fixes this issue?
