Good to know that it's a bug, but I thought for a moment that I dreamed of but it turns out it's the truth! So what can I do right now? Is this option will be restored back in sometime should we see it again in Firefox browser?

No, this option has been removed on purpose to clean up that options window and this won't be restored back to the previous situation.
You will have to access the about:addons page via the Firefox or Tools menu or create a bookmark (on the Bookmarks Toolbar) with the location set to about:addons for easy access.

G-hot, Not a bug when it was removed intentionally.

Bugzilla is not just for "bugs" but is rather a muti-purpose tracker for a variety of things Mozilla.
