OK. So I went to Adam's site and checked.

Well here is a quote:

"To complement the ActiveX control there is plugin project that shares many of the same files. This allows Netscape Communicator and Mozilla to display ActiveX controls.

This project is still in the early stages, but the intended goals are:

1. Support for ActiveX controls via the <EMBED> tag 2. Support for ActiveX controls in Communicator 4 via implementation of the legacy plugin API. 3. LiveConnect and scripting support so that ActiveX controls can be controlled from JavaScript and other means

Please note that only steps 1 & 2 are there at the moment! There is no scripting support at present!

The Gecko layout engine has extended plug-in support. The hope is that the ActiveX plug-in will be able to utilize the advanced features of the new API to allow.

There are a number of ActiveX implementations already for Netscape Navigator/Communicator but the intention is that this will be the first open source version. Also, due to its implementation with ATL it will also be one of the lightest and fastest as well.

>You cannot run ActiveX controls inside of mozilla.

You sure?
