Also released was Firefox ESR Version 68.6.

Thanks.
I rarely fire up FF ESR but I do like to stay current and this site helps me to do that.

Those with Facebook will have noticed the prompt to install the Facebook Container add-on:  https://www.theregister.co.uk/2020/03/12/firefox_74_aims_to_contain_facebook_tighten_security/

I have 'Install F.B. Purity - Clean Up and Customize Facebook' installed. Should I remove this if I install the Firefox add-on?

The Firefox Container Add-on doesn't do the same things that F.B.Purity does.

The purpose of the Facebook Container is to let you continue to use Facebook but without having the social network site track your browsing elsewhere.
With the option to sort by most recent and block so many things, F.B. Purity actually makes Facebook usable.  F.B. Purity Features - FBP : Clean up and Customize Facebook

I tend to agree with you after looking at the Firefox add-on.
