Mouse gestures (and other addons) don't work on mozilla.org and other pages (eg. the browser's options page) -- any way to fix this?

It's annoying not being able to use my mouse gestures when browsing addons, these forums, etc. since I rely heavily on Gesturefy for physical reasons. I don't much mind not being able to use other addons on these pages, however. Is there any way to fix this?

Extensions do not work on Mozilla websites because content scripts are blocked on several restricted domains that have special permissions to access and modify personal data.

And there is no way to change that?

Note that we do not recommend allowing extensions to run on Mozilla websites this way because this allows malicious extensions to do dangerous things.
