That's right, Mozilla does not support ActiveX. There are some third-party solutions if you must use it: http://www.iol.ie/~locka/mozilla/plugin.htm and some commercial solutions.

Just to follow up on this This is my first ENHANCEMENT request , I don't see how it could harm anyone leaving this open for A couple days to see what kind of Attention it brings.

In closing and Furthermore , 

There are many parts of ActiveX that can be 100% safe and secure for emulation similiar to the DCOM emulation in Certain 1.0 *NIX versions , why not incorporate them into Firefox ?

And then give the user the option to allow ActiveX components or not ?





I don't see any harm in getting A devils advocate opinion iether.





Since this is my first Enhancement Request I implore you to reconsider the status of this for A day or possibly 2.


I have tried to be simplistic as possible.
