Probably a rather dense headed question... but after looking up
mozilla esr I'm not at all understanding what it is or why one might
use it.

The sight https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/organizations/faq/,
claims that (paraphrasing here) ESR is for Businesses, or other, who
need exteneded support for mass deployments

Further along, under `Who should use Mozilla Firefox ESR' it says that
Moz ESR is meant for organization that manage there client desktops

And it even tells you that for `personal' use you should get a
different version.

Can anyone elaborate a bit about this?
