Read the press release!
"As part of this process we expect to make several contributions to the Mozilla code base, especially in the area of cross-language communication and extending the XPCOM component model," said Dr. David Ascher, Senior Developer and Project Lead, ActiveState. "By providing bridges between Perl and Python and the Mozilla framework, we are giving the Perl and Python Open Source projects deep access to the power of Mozilla."
Basically, it sounds like activestate will be doing all the gruntwork of making mozilla fully scriptable from perl and python. Fun stuff!
And if you want to indulge in some really crazy thoughts, remember that the current perl "pumpking", Gurusamy Sarathy, works for active state. Maybe mozilla will end up embeded in perl! ;-)
