hello, activex is a proprietary microsoft technology for internet explorer and chrome ships with its own bundled flash player. to get falsh to work in firefox you'll have to download the flash player "for other browsers" from http://www.adobe.com/go/getflashplayer

To make sure you do not get Google Chrome and or McAfee Security Scan as part of the Adobe Flash download if you forget to uncheck, try this link instead for the latest Flash version.

As you can see, different Flash for different browsers. http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/
