I recently landed bug 1010587 [1], which sets android:debuggable to 
"true" for tinderbox and tryserver debug nightly builds.

That means you can install one of those builds, like the latest 
tinderbox build from mozilla-central [2], and then use ADB shell's 
"run-as" command to access and modify its data without having to root 
your device:

>  adb shell run-as org.mozilla.fennec ls /data/data/org.mozilla.fennec/
app_plugins
app_plugins_private
app_tmpdir
cache
databases
files
lib
shared_prefs

You can even update an optimized nightly to troubleshoot issues with the 
installation's data. But beware version numbers, as the update must have 
a newer one, or package installation will fail with the uninformative 
error message "app not installed."

Note: the change only applies to builds for which both MOZ_DEBUG and 
NIGHTLY_BUILD are defined, so it doesn't apply to optimized builds nor 
those from the Aurora/Beta/Release branches.
