    How does one set the following parameters in Mozilla
    (that is, which menus and submenus can these be found)?

    * Prompt before download of signed ActiveX controls.
    * Disable download of unsigned ActiveX controls.
    * Disable initializing and scripting of ActiveX controls
    not marked as safe.
    * Disable data access across domains.
    * Prompt before installation of desktop items.
    * Warn if forms submittal is being redirected.
    * Prompt before downloading of anything.

    I could be wrong, however, I am certain that Mozilla does not support
    ActiveX without adding a plug in. Java is supported. If I had the
    suite installed I would help you otherwise, I only have Firebird and the
    menu structure is different.

    Somewhere around 11/9/03 5:41 AM, wylbur37 typed wildly with reckless
    One of the reasons Mozilla is so much more secure than IE is that it
    doesn't do activeX at all. Sure there is a plugin that you can use to
    enable it, but why would you want to. Windows update is the only thing I
    can think of, and I don't think it *so* bad to open IE once in a great
    while for only that.

  4. Why should I want to request for Windows update on my Unix machine? The
    only windows I see, are the Mozilla windows. ;-)
