Adding activeX to firefox, is like commiting suicide. How many security leaks
and malwares use activeX to shit on users ?

Moreover, ActiveX controls are going to be deactived by default with IE7. So why
adding them to firefox ?

No we can choose to accept the ActiveX with one click.

I'am a webmaster and me and many other webmaster are fed up to be forced to 
forbid access to Firefox users.

ActiveX are more and more popular in the web, for example most of legal music 
sites use them.
There's also used by pictures sites for uploading several files.

In the future millions of site will use ActiveX, so FireFox will die if it 
can't load them.

So implementing ActiveX under Firefox is urgent !!!

in answer to comment #3 :

I am a mac user, so your site is not available for me. Moreover, activeX with legal music site ? Why one of 
the biggest - Itunes Music Store - doesn't use it ?

All others sites are providing CRAPPY WMA+DRM music files.

Uploading file ? It could be done in php, and a lot of people with blogs are using blogger, wordpress, or 
any other php+mysql based software.

So open your eyes. Windows IS NOT THE ONLY OS and PCs are NOT THE ONLY COMPUTERS available.
