This is what I found:

Studies of women who have used Depo-Provera for a long time have found virtually no increased risk of cancers of the breast, ovaries, liver, or cervix (mouth of the uterus). Some studies do show a slight increased risk of breast cancer in women younger than 35 years old who have taken Depo-Provera for a short time, but the increase is about three additional cases of breast cancer per 10,000 women. At the same time, Depo-Provera helps reduce the chance of cancer of the endometrium, or lining of the uterus.

So it looks like it does not cause Liver problems. But does react to people who already have liver problems.
