Did you make sure that you installed the different versions of Netscape in unique profiles?

Netscape Gecko is a standards-based browser embedded in Netscape 6.x and 7.x, AOL for Mac OS X, CompuServe 7, and Mozilla.

This document outlines what websites who wish to provide streaming media experiences to Gecko-based browsers can do, and also presents information for those wishing to develop Netscape-style plugins, or augment existing Netscape-style plugins.

Are there specific plugins that aren't working for you?

I'm more than happy to continue working towards a resolution with you.  Can you give more information in terms of the type of component you're trying to add to NS 6 or 7?  Have you explored alternatives, since Netscape is Gecko based?  This link may provide some paths to explore and find alternatives.

http://devedge.netscape.com/viewsource/2002/markup-and-plugins/ .... the above gives insight on ActiveX issues
Brief excerpt from the last link above, but bears mentioning, since it points to specific versions and considerations...
Browsers such as Netscape 7 will not render the Flash plugin if the above kind of markup is used, because Netscape 7 does not support ActiveX or ActiveX-based component invocations, with the exception of Windows Media Player in Netscape 7.1. Mozilla-based browsers support the Netscape Plugin architecture, which is not COM based like ActiveX (and thus, not invoked via a Unique Identifier) but rather, MIME type based. Mozilla-based browsers support the use of the object element along with a MIME type. Here is an example of this usage, once again for the Macromedia Flash plugin:

thanks,
this ActiveX is my activeX that I want to make work in Netscape browsers.

In 7.1 I made it work by enabling my ActiveX in activex.js file. Maybe you know is it possible to enable ActiveX throuth Netscape browser? So I can instruct the user what he/she should do to enable my ActiveX?

what I did is just opened js file - and changed it - not so friednly....

regarding other browsers I'll back to you later, when I come to it again (if you will be so nice and help me again :))

Unless I'm mistaken, the ACtiveX controls reside at the end-user level under all circumstances to help them protect themselves from malicious activity.

I'm more than happy to help you anytime I can.

Best wishes,
Asta
