This isn't really fix but a work around, session manager publisher provides the necessary info;
My only recommendation is to either not update to Firefox 57, use the Firefox ESR build or use a forked version of Firefox that does not remove support for add-ons such as CyberFox or Waterfox.
.
I personally switched to cyberfox and it seems to work flawlessly with otherwise disabled adds I have installed, like video download helper and session manager.

If anyone has a better solution, let me know in the comment area and I'll edit those in the main body here.

Actually you might as well just use Firefox ESR as that is what the author of Cyberfox has switched to for his sources.

Cyberfox 52.0 lands with some large changes dropping support for Windows Vista and switches over to the Firefox 52.0 ESR branch

Also says the browser will be EOL in 12 months and that was back in March 2017 so only about 3-4 months left.

What does this mean as a Cyberfox user, this means in 12 months you will likely have to find another browser but there still remains an uncertainty that the browser could continue past this point with a new lease of life but at this stage consider it 12 months to EOL (End of life). Sorry for such a long post but i felt you all deserved a good explanation about whats happening for the browsers future and its current direction.
