Mulongo oyo etiyamaki na archive. Tuna motuna mosusu soki osengeli na lisalisi

I've developed an ActiveX that works in IE. 1) Can I get the ActiveX to work in firefox? 2) If not, what IDE would I use to re-write the ActiveX as a new plug-in? Thanks!

I'm an independent software developer. My client had me write a program to run on their web site (which I did as an ActiveX control). Some of their clients are using Firefox instead of IE. So how can we support those clients who want to use Firefox?

My first question is whether Firefox has a plug-in that will run ActiveX controls, and my second question is, if not, then what programming environment (IDE) can be used in order to re-write the ActiveX.

Please note: the source code contains trade secrets. Therefore, it is not an option that the source code be open source or available to the public.

So, finally, does the technology exist to provide the same capabilities that my ActiveX provides, while operating in a Firefox environment, and still have protected code?
