That data exists, and you can even get per-locale and a few similar 
things. The problem is that there was a project going on to makes that 
and similar data user-accessible, but the metrics team was restructured 
and the part that should work on this was heavily decimated, and so now 
they mostly don't have time to work on this lower-priority project. They 
might also still be trying to hire someone that would have helping with 
this as one piece of their job.

We don't have that. All we have is data from the "Add-on Blocklist 
Ping", i.e. the daily request that Thunderbird sends for an updated 
blocklist. This does not have any user identifier or anything (after 
all, this is a Mozilla project and therefore cannot do privacy-invading 
stuff like this "just because we want good data"), so it's impossible to 
get weekly or monthly information out of it.
