Only for the ESR, developer and nightly versions of firefox.
  https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/add-on-signing-in-firefox
Firefox Extended Support Release (ESR), Firefox Developer Edition and
Nightly versions of Firefox will allow you to override the setting to
enforce the extension signing requirement, by changing the preference
xpinstall.signatures.required to false in the Firefox Configuration
Editor (about:config page).
