ActiveWidgets in Mozilla?

I read this interesting project but I don't understand if run on Mozilla.
Your file request.js and gecko.js

.. ActiveXObject["MSXML2.DOMDocument"]

and I think who not run on Mozilla/Netscape.

var request = new XMLHttpRequest();
request.open("GET", url, async);

if url is a ASP page who connect a DB it run ???

Did you try to run the examples in Mozilla?


Actually, it works, because ActiveWidgets includes IE emulation layer when running in Mozilla. It adds some proprietary IE functionality to the standard classes and also imitates some ActiveX objects like MSXML2.DOMDocument and MSXML2.XMLHTTP.

Ideally one should be able to write code optimized for IE and run it in Mozilla without any changes.

I'm running mozilla on linux, and things work fine... sorta. ;)
The examplmes I've seen here work just fine, with the exception of
some of the documentation stuff. The initial examples will work, but
if I try to "refresh" anything, mozilla crashes. Whether this is an ActiveWidgets bug or a mozilla bug, I'm not sure, but... the bug exists. ;)
Happens on Firefox 0.8 and mozilla 1.6, running debian/unstable, kernel 2.6.3.
Anybody else having the same problem?

I found the crash (tutorial 'refresh' button) happens both on Windows (XP) and Linux (RedHat 9.0) and both FireFox 0.8 and Mozilla 1.6. Does not happen with previous versions of Moz/Firebird. Looks like moz bug, but I'll check if I can find a workaround.
