Microsoft Windows Management Instrumentation tools not working

Posted

When trying to use Microsoft WMI tools with Firefox, Firefox seems to be blocking the ActiveX controls used. How can I enable these ActiveX controls in Firefox so the the WMI tools work OK? They work in IE9 OK. This is for Windows 7 64 bit with Firefox 16.0.2
