Mozilla 1.6 ActiveX Control Installer and Scriptable ActiveX Plugin for Mozilla 1.6 Released

Tuesday January 20th, 2004

Adam Lock writes: "Following in the wake of Mozilla 1.6, I'm happy to announce the release of the new standalone Mozilla 1.6 ActiveX Control installer and the Scriptable ActiveX Plugin for Mozilla 1.6. Both are available from my website.

"New features for the control include support for view-source: and data: protocols, plus it ships with the ActiveX plugin so it is possible to host ActiveX content from inside the control. The installer is slightly smaller (4.5Mb) thanks to bzip2 compression.

"There are no new features in the plugin but Mozilla 1.6 is unencumbered by the regression that disabled scripting support in 1.5."

I have submitted an ehnancement bug report to the NSS project to add a new option to signtool that would create valid signed XPI's. Please view the bug report and give your support for the enhancement. Even if the patch isn't from me, we need it. In a world of security and no trust it's hard to get non-techies to use Mozilla as it is and even harder to get some of them to install anything that's not trusted.
