Default Legacy extensions not working on Firefox ESR

Just for the fun it.
Removed latest Firefox Quantum and installed ESR version.
Legacy extensions still don't work (no option to enable them).
Is some special config to do?

Default Same problem

I'm having exactly the same problem. Tried 32 and 64 bit versions of 52esr; all legacy addons disabled and no option to turn on.

From Mozilla support.

ESR 52 will be the last ESR release that supports legacy add-ons. Support for ESR 52 officially ends on June 2018.

The following ESR release (59), and any subsequent release, will not support legacy add-ons. There will be no override provided for this behavior.

Was trying to add more info for this but managed to close the tab.

Anyway, not all the info seems 100% clear but according to most, sometime this month (November) these addons will stop working anyway so users will only have the option to use an older version of the browser that will become progressively less safe with time.
Buy a Hoover and prove technology sucks.
