enablePrivilege is being completely removed from the platform.
Status: UNCONFIRMED → RESOLVED

It is as if it had already been removed since there is no way to make it grant the privilege. What is then the replacement?
In Firefox 15 you can grant privileges in some cases by manually setting preferences. In Firefox 17, I believe that has been removed too. The replacement is to write an extension if you need to run privileged code.
I set manually the preferences by adding to the prefs.js file (in the profile directory) the appropriate lines, but have got the same error message.
Hence "in some cases". For file:// URIs there are some ... issues, as I recall.
