MozillaBrowser does not work, but InternetExplorerworks just fine. Why?

Hi there

I try to replace IE with Mozilla. I have no error messages but Mozilla does not show up (see below)

I tried to debug like this:
    ? o_Browser.Visible
I get an error (-2147418113 (8000ffff), Browser not in a vlid state).

Can anyone help?
Thank you for every tip.

Susan

Have you tried Mozilla ActiveX Control 1.7.12 from this Link?:

Private Sub Form_Load()
   MozillaBrowser1.Navigate "http:\\www.google.com"
End Sub

Dear danaseaman,

thank you for writing. Yes I have tried the Mozilla Active X Control.

What you sent looks like an embedded control, no?
I like to have an external browser instance (with all browser's native buttons, history, etc).

project > reference (not project > component) I need to configure for that.

AFAIK you can only do this with the ActiveX control unless you call ShellExecute to load and instance of FireFox.
