User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:56.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/56.0
Build ID: 20170716030208

Steps to reproduce:

Options>General>Fonts & Colors>Colors>Visited Links> click on the color to open the color picker. The table is all grey with only the bottom row being shades of black, and the very first box on to-left corner being white. Click elsewhere to close the popup color picker. Click on the color again to open the color picker again. This time the color table shows properly. Pick red and click OK. Restart the browser and visit links. They are still purple.

Open about:config and manually choose a color for browser.visited_color. Doesn't make a difference.

This is the first time I'm doing this so it's impossible to tell when the problem begun. Tested in Safe Mode.

Perhaps due to:
