Some popular extensions for Firefox will stop working as of release of Firefox 57.

Example of popular extensions to be discontinued:

Classic Theme Restorer

Part of the text from addon description:

This add-on will stop working when Firefox 57 arrives in November 2017 and Mozilla drops support for XUL / XPCOM / legacy add-ons. It should still work on Firefox 52 ESR until ESR moves to Firefox 59 ESR in 2018 (~Q2).

We need support for these extensions for at least 1-2 years longer.
