My firefox is running fine, and I have a new addon I did not add myself:

hotfix-update-xpi-intermediate 1.0.2

This is a hotfix that updates an intermediate certificate used for
signing add-ons. It is one of the mechanisms used to fix bug 1548973.

Apparently that is why an UPDATE will be needed for Firefox ESR. I don't
believe ESR will receive the certificate fix automatically. That is why
Mozilla included the language dnh quoted.

My FF, version 60.6.1esr, is functioning just fine now (since about 4
hours ago or so) -- all Addons functioning as before. This on Leap 15.0.

You must be lucky BC, my is still borked. Only way to use is to set

xpinstall.signatures.required false

Here is what I see:

If I set

xpinstall.signatures.required true

all of my addons are automatically disabled :(
