How do I enble "gecko-target mode" and use WebExtensions?

On https://www.basilisk-browser.org/features.shtml it mentions:
Experimental support for WebExtensions (in gecko-target mode). Please note that some Mozilla-specific WebExtension APIs are not yet available.
I'd like to use WebExtensions, but I can't figure out how to enable gekko-target mode. How do I enable it?

Have you looked in the about:config settings.?

Is not gecko-target mode referring to the

Code: Select all

"applications": {
	"gecko": {
		//...
	}
}
in the add-on's own manifest.json? Basilisk installs and runs compatible WebExtensions just fine. There is no need to modify browser configuration.

Yami_ is exactly correct. "Gecko target mode" is determined by the extension in its manifest, it is not something you configure in the browser.
