I'm thinking about switching to Firefox ESR and not a 100% sure how long Mozilla will support it. According to this it looks like it will have support until May of 2018: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/organizations/ So how long will Mozilla support Firefox ESR for?

 

Oops I meant to put this under Web Browsing/Email and Other Internet Applications.

ESR will continue to be developed into the foreseeable future. Note: This will not let you get out of using Firefox Quantum which some people hate. That will arrive when ESR 52.9.0 is no longer supported at which point you will get ESR 60.1.0 or later.

Mozilla Firefox ESR is meant for organizations that manage their client desktops, including schools, businesses and other institutions that want to offer Firefox.

So I know Firefox ESR is at version 52.5.2 (inside Virtualbox). So version 52.9.0 will arrive on June 2018 if I understand correctly? And I have to get a new PPA for Firefox ESR on Linux Mint with version 60.1.0 or later right?

If so then I'm probably better off installing version 57.

Correct, you you need to get a new PPA for ESR and you wish to stick with Firefox then bite the bullet and go with Quantum v57

As much as I hate to say it my best bet is to probably go with Firefox Quantum.
