Pulling the mask off is common until you get used to breathing through CPAP, I did it too, just keep putting it back on and you'll stop eventually.

I have a deviated septum too, I wear a ResMed Mirage Quattro FFM, it rests higher on the nose (bridge) and has no effect on my septum since it's on the bony part of the nose unlike the Quattro FX you currently have, there's also an adjustable forehead pad to allow you to adjust how much pressure the mask places on your nasal bridge.
Were you shown the proper "swing 'n seal" method of putting your Quattro FX mask on by your RT?

I've never tried the Mirage Liberty, I've seen it and know it's a hybrid mask, there are a few regular members here that use it so they should be able to offer more insight regarding its pro's and con's.
I take it you're a mouth breather like me and require a FFM. If you don't have a history of breathing through your mouth there's a lot of other options you could try, nasal pillows go slightly into your nostrils and nasal cushions just go around your nose.
Good luck, the mask is the hardest part to figure-out but after you find what works for you're on the right track.
