Will FEBE be modified to run in webextensions rather than as a legacy addon?

No. FEBE will no longer work with Firefox beginning with v57. It will, however, still be maintained for Fx clones like Pale Moon.

The WebExtensions platform is simply too primitive and limiting for add-ons like FEBE to be written in. The platform does not allow access to the things FEBE backs up.
