I suggest using the resources in the WebAPI Community section of that page. This one here is more of an end-user support forum.

Actually, I found this, which is not very promising for you:

"A certified app is intended for a critical system function like the default dialer or the system settings app on a smartphone. This type of app would be used for critical functions on a Firefox OS phone. It is not intended for third party apps, so most app developers can disregard this type of app."

Thanks for the information. Guess , I should be a OEM/ Manufacturer to access those Sensitive APIs in third party application.
