Anupam, please clarify whether this means that the original Firefox was activeX enabled the way Internet Explorer is?

I was always under the impression that MS Internet Explorer (and clones) were the only browsers implementing ActiveX. The rest regarded it as a hazardous piece of programming.

Please ignore: got the details in your second link

ActiveX and ActiveX scripting. ActiveX is specific to Microsoft's Internet Explorer, and is not natively supported by (any) Firefox builds. There are some extensions that enable ActiveX components and scripts to run in Firefox on Windows, which will, therefore, not run in Pale Moon. This is a security consideration more than a speed consideration.
