hello madhavithallam, activeX is a proprietary format by microsoft - this won't work through plain javascript.

hello, i don't think this possible at all but i'm in no way an expert on this. for developer oriented questions you also might be better off asking them in a specialised forum like http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewforum.php?f=25 since we here at support.mozilla.org are rather focused on support for firefox end-users. thank you for your understanding!
