Thanks you for your response.
My extension don’t need to modify proxy preferences, but only to open them. Once opened, a bundled application makes a screenshot of it.
It is a critical application, used by legal entities. The goal is to made an evidence of the actual proxy settings.
Do you think there is another way to do this with webextension ?

That's not possible.
As Andy says, that's not possible. But that does not mean your end goal is not possible. What does your extension do with the proxy preferences? There is a proxy API you can use to change proxy settings. Have you looked at it?
