Correct, FF 60esr should be entering stable-security more or less within
the next hours, so told by by security team yesterday. It would be just
a waist of time to create a possibility of co-installation.

(BTW: Thunderbird will follow in the next days.)

And I never thought about such a possibility in detail simply because
the "original" Debian way is to have just one FF ESR package on the
system. If users install a separate additional FF package they are on
their own, but the system is flexible enough to get this handled.
