    I would like to know how to disable Active X.
    I run Mozilla 1.1, and I have removed IE with IEradicator.
    I would prefer to leave it off, because since I have done that, I haven't had one BSOD (of course, it may not be related, but I like to think it is). Because of this, I don't have Internet Options in the control panel.
    Mozilla allows you to disable Javascript, but that wouldn't disable ActiveX, would it?

    Thank you

    Hi Scotcov. No disabling javascript is not the same as ActiveX.
    Someone told me some time ago that Mozilla does not support ActiveX, like Opera does not support it either.
    Looks like there is a plugin for it in Mozilla, here.
    Don't blame you for wanting to be rid of it. :D

    Thanks Root. You have made me feel much better! I'll just pass on that plugin. ;)
