Lightbeam is not yet compatible for Firefox 27.0 on Android but that is mainly due to the developer. We have no control over add-ons. Your best bet would be to talk to the developer since it is their job to keep their add-on updated for each Firefox release.

To add further clarification to what Moses (thanks M!) said:

Lightbeam was developed under a grant by Mozilla for Firefox for Desktop (Mac, Windows Linux) but it was never developed for Android unfortunately.

Lightbeam is open souce and it would be possible for a developer to port it to Android but it's a big job I think, here's the desktop code:

Locking this question because the question has been answered and there's not much more to say other than finding a developer to port it to Android.

Hope that helps!
