There's not been one since around Firefox 1.5. Even Firefox 2 doesn't have one. See this link.

and hopefully there will be none in the future :) ... first it is just for windows ... so in case someone needs it then just use IE ... second ActiveX has some heavy security issues ... so such proprietary/unsafe things shouldn't be adopted by standards compliant browsers ... but that's just my personal opinion :)

kind regards

True. The question to ask yourself is why you need it. If it's for video/audio, this link may help as an alternative.

no ... and as i said earlier ... hopefully there will never be one, for a public webpage it is definitly not nessecary and for an intranet-application it would be appropriate to force the users to use IE since you already would force the user to use windows at all, by using activeX controls.

kind regards

PS: an option for windows-FF with installed IE could be to install the IE tab extension in FF to open an IE in FF.
