Is there an expected release date of Firefox ESR that will support headless browsing mode?

I have been running some code using the PhantomJS (no longer maintained) headless browser package. However, due to compliance, it would be better that I use a browser driver that is supported and patched from time to time.

Currently our computers are using Mozilla Firefox 52.3.0 ESR. When I use the Firefox Driver in my code , it simply opens a Firefox window. I was wondering when the next Firefox ESR release date might be that would support headless browsing mode for my coding purposes.

Hi,

The next ESR version of Firefox (59.0) will be released on March 13, 2018. You can see a calendar of future release dates here: https://wiki.mozilla.org/RapidRelease/Calendar

In the meantime, you should also be able to use headless browsing in the current release version of Firefox (57.0).
