How do I control scripting (block or disable) coming from "Priviledged" pages like Support.mozilla.org?

Posted

When on the mozilla.org website I am unable to control the scripting or security because add-ons I use for protection cannot run on "priveledged" pages. How do I revoke the Priveledged status of pages like support.mozilla.org? I don't care if it can break Firefox, I want to see and be able to disable anything and/or everything regardless of whether I trust Mozilla or not (please don't respond with: you already trust Mozilla what's the big deal?) I control my experience online, the further you take that control from me the more apt I am to stop using your product.

Mozilla has protected certain Mozilla-operated websites from extensions that try to run content scripts on them. This list includes:

This is primarily for security and privacy reasons, like to prevent extensions from capturing login information or hijacking your browser by installing other extensions.

This cannot be bypassed since it's builtin to Firefox's code.

You can bypass this by editing the extensions.webextensions.restrictedDomains preference on the about:config page, although you should do so with caution.
