FF told me it was up to date at 50.1 and refused to update automatically. Used the link in your post to go quickly to release notes and downloaded new version from there. Thanks Corrine!

After updating FF ESR told me that WOT was risky and disabled it.

Keep your eye on this thread for a replacement
