Let me start with pointing out that we try to publish Firefox WebRTC Release 
Notes shortly after a new version of Firefox gets started. For example for 
Firefox you can find them here 
https://wiki.mozilla.org/Media/WebRTC/ReleaseNotes/59 
<https://wiki.mozilla.org/Media/WebRTC/ReleaseNotes/59>
And for the current Firefox Beta 60 they are here 
https://wiki.mozilla.org/Media/WebRTC/ReleaseNotes/60 
<https://wiki.mozilla.org/Media/WebRTC/ReleaseNotes/60>

In the future I’ll try to send out emails to this list when new release notes 
are available.

Normally I would also point you at MDN for documentation of features in 
Firefox. But it seems that the documentation for replaceTrack() is actually 
missing in there - I notified our MDN folks about it.

In terms of your specific issue my guess is that it is a side effect of 
Transceivers becoming available in Firefox 59, and not specific work on 
replaceTrack().

And lastly we encourage everyone working on or with WebRTC to always test with 
Firefox Nightly or at lest Beta to ensure their products keep working with 
browser implementations which try to keep up with the changing WebRTC spec as 
good as they can.

Best regards
