This brings me to the question – what sort of issues are users of Firefox 58 and NVDA experiencing? I know that other major screen-reader does not work with any of the new FF versions, but nVDA does – seemingly quite well in fact.

This isn't just something Mozilla does every now and then. Extended Support releases may be used by anyone but they are intended for businesses and other institutions that don't want the program to be upgraded frequently. The extended support release receives all security updates but the program itself doesn't upgrade for one year after release.
The next ESR release will be this summer sometime in June, as I recall.
Because of all the changes being made in firefox now that may impair performance for blind users and interfere with accessibility of some web sites, those who don't want to use the new versions are instructed to use the current ESR version which is version 52 of the program and was released before these changes took place. Those who want to try the new versions, in particular those who want to try new versions and send feedback regarding problems and progress are encouraged to try the new versions as they are released.
