How can I list (and filter) all AddOns which are NOT designed for newer FF v57ff or which are compatible with old FF v52 AddOns?

On the page ... Screenshot

There is no such filter for AddOn type or browser version.

Furthermore I wonder how I can download the old *.xpi file for the old format when I version for the new WebExtension AND the old AddOn type exists.

you cant, and yes, there is no filter for this. anyhow mozilla is going to remove all legacy extensions. thus you only find webextensions on AMO. webextensions are usable since v48.

Are you talking about Legacy extensions (Firefox 52 (42+) supports WebExtensions)?
The Add-ons website no longer hosts Legacy extensions.

I have an experimental search page that shows the compatibility range of the current version of the extension. However, there could be older versions with different ranges, which I don't display because that isn't included in the main API call.
