We have created an XPI that copies the plugins to the Mozilla profiles and we have an exe that installs the Active X components
We are detecting whether the plugins are installed using navigator.mimeTypes
Now, When we open the webpage after installing the plugins, it gives error message
" LoadLibrary failed for C:\WINNT\system32\test.dll. Minimum configaration to run signing application is not available"
This is beacuse we have not installed the exe yet.

Now, I want to trap this error so that I can detect that the exe is not installed and prompt the user to install the exe before this error comes

There is a message that is thrown by firefox.exe. How do I trap this error message in javascript?
Can I read the error message displayed in this dialog or atleast the title of the dialog?
