Correction for FF ESR.
The version went from 60.7.2 to 60.8 not version 68 yet.

I just updated one of the computers.

Thanks, plodr.  I was going by the Release Notes which pointed to version 68.0.0 being released for ESR -- which it has been but apparently so system admins can get an early look at it and make any needed changes.

Yes, it seems you have a choice. Move to 68 ESR now or stay with 60.x (currently 60.8 ) until October 23rd.
It's funny, they still only offer 60 ESR for download.
