You can use javascript just fine. The main problem is that most
firefox extensions try to modify the XUL user interface (which doesn't
exist in the Sugar web activity).

I know that people managed to get firefox extensions which doesn't
modify the xul UI to run under epiphany/galeon in the past. I don't
know exactly how they did that but something similar should also work
for our web activity.
