I'm not sure what you were trying to do (which page gave the "-202" error?), but ActiveX is a Microsoft technology and only available on Windows. So there is simply no chance that installing this will work on your Mac.
This is a mass search for bugs that are in the Firefox General component, are UNCO, and have not been changed for 1000 days and have an unspecified version. 

Reporter, can you please update to Firefox 3.6.10, create a fresh profile,, and test again. If you still see the bug, please update this bug. If the issue is gone, please set the resolution to RESOLVED > WORKSFORME.
