Wouldn't it be possible for Fedora Project to add Firefox-ESR to the
repository? A user could then dnf install firefox-esr and be on ver
52.5 with all the old add-ins?

That depends. There are some add-ons that are completely incompatible
with the new interface, and will never be converted. I've seen lists
when searching on the topic - from what I could see, I don't use any of
And some will have compromised functionality - the video downloaders
are a case in point. They no longer have access to the video stream
logic in firefox, so have to use an external app, and it is problematic
to say the least.
Some have decided not to make the switch, and many of those are being
supplanted by new entrants. Mozilla has a recommended replacement
page, though again, not everything has a replacement there.
This is a mess, to be sure. And I think firefox lost important
functionality in the switch.
