The docs for https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/Apps/Packaged_apps indicate there is a "Developer Mode" for installing apps with elevated permissions, but I can't find mention of this mode on the device or in the docs where it's mentioned.

This was implemented in bug 806634, but we had to remove it because security deemed this as giant security hole. See the whole discussion over in bug 813797 which explains why it was removed.
