Funny, Firefox Nightly 55, 56 shows the same font as latest Firefox Nightly 57, but Firefox 56 beta or 55 stable shows the same font as Chrome or Edge. So only difference is in Nightly, no matter number version. It has to be some at least a few months old setting which is valid only for Nightly.
No custom font settings.

That's because the Google Roboto font isn't W3C valid for downloadable webfonts, so Firefox Nightly (which respect the W3C recommendations) doesn't render the Roboto font.

Toggle the pref gfx.downloadable_fonts.otl_validation to false solve the problem.

There are some cases when a font face is like a completely different.
Let's hope that the Firefox will never ever get this awful blurry Chromium font text rendering... [-o<

Are you ready for deprecation of XUL & XBL & XPCOM extensions? Not?! Try Firefox ESR

Last night's build broke Context search X, so I found a replacement called Quick Context Search, it is a legacy ext as well, but works fine for the moment.

Well, in Firefox Beta and Stable versions it is the same as in Chrome.

Why has my Android Nightly become an ugly version of Chrome?

Anyone know which bug I can read to laugh at the "discussion" that promoted this change? Thx.

56 Beta 1 build 5. :wink:
Customize Firefox 57+ UI || Classic Theme Restorer (Fx 29-56) || Classic Toolbar Buttons || CustomizeMyBird

How to use legacy add-ons after Firefox 57 release? Switch to Firefox 52 ESR or move to Waterfox browser or Basilisk browser.

Ah, right, I forgot to add the "1" to Beta. Still astounding to me. :)
I'm not up-to-date that often. :)

If you navigate to Hamburger menu - Library - History - Scroll down to recent history what is the intended behaviour there ? Because nothing is happening when I click on a page from history.
edit:
The same for Library - Bookmarks

Same here, mid-click works from the Show all History, nothing anywhere else. I see no errors in the 'browser console'...

Using the Compact LIght theme - open the Options panel - the text for the tabs is too dark on a dark background. *sigh*

Maybe broken by https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1361957

EDIT: I'm using the 'override' to go back to 'old' options... OK with the New design page.

EDIT: Meh! now I can't remember what pref I flipped LOL Oh - browser.preferences.useOldOrganization
