I am amazed Mozilla would include ActiveX. My belief is that Mozilla should not support technology which requires a specific platform/OS. This also goes contrary to the goal (I always thought Mozilla supported) of helping the keep the web/internet platform/OS/browser independent.

I am very saddened and disappointed that Mozilla has given up one of its ideals and has supported ActiveX which requires Windows to function. Mozilla has made a huge mistake in my opinion by supporting ActiveX. (And I didn't even get into the security risks of ActiveX).
