        "gecko": {
            "strict_min_version": "57.0"

– what problems, if any, might be expected with Waterfox Classic?

Early test results are good, no problems.

Effective blocking where visits are allowed, for example:

Firefox 56 is the last release to support legacy APIs for add-ons. In their place we’ve created “WebExtensions,” a set of cross-browser extension APIs

Basically untested at this point. We'll probably need to wait for a developer to provide a more clearcut answer

Updates applied manually. I have used 2.1.0 for around eleven days now.

As far as I can tell: no compatibility issue with any 2.* version of the extension.

A comment from a developer will be appreciated, no rush. If compatibility can be confirmed, then the strictness might be stepped down from 57.0 to 56.0 – this will be enough to enable automated updates for end users.
