The component can only work at the IE6/7/8/9/10. If you want to use it at the Mozila Firefox, you need to install the ActiveX control support in the FireFox.

Microsoft created ActiveX for the Internet Explorer browser to properly play various types of media.

For that reason, Mozilla has created a plug-in that will allow ActiveX to be enabled in Firefox.
