I didn't dig into it enough. Conkeror won't read from the system or home
mozilla directories. Instead, it has at least its own
~/ directory where extensions are stored. I put the
extension there and Conkeror found it...

...but now Conkeror also says that it's not compatible also.

First: I realized that Firefox really was still at version 14, since
that was the last version I installed before I migrated from Arch to
Parabola, and the install.rdf shows a minimum version of 16. 
Now that I installed Iceweasel 16, I see that the system-installed
LibreJS works fine. 

Second: I have no idea about Conkeror. I'm looking into the
HTTPSEverywhere extension's install.rdf, which includes this section
that LibreJS lacks:

        <!-- Conkeror -->

LibreJS only has a Firefox target. Perhaps this little bit of info
helps. I can't find any info on how to automatically add new target
applications during the build process.
