Default Firefox and VB

Hey all, Is there any way to get Firefox in Powerpoint?

The web browser control won't work - and even if it did - it wouldn't have built-in Java.

So... I guess what I'm looking for is an OCX file?

Is there one out there...?

I can't seem to find one...

Thanks.

Why would you want to have Firefox in Powerpoint?

I dunno if there is a controller/component of Firefox for usage in VB, but I wouldn't mind knowing myself though.

Restate what you are wanting to do. You talk about PP and VB, then go onto PP and Firefox..

I'm trying to get a java applet embedded in powerpoint at my school.

But their PCs don't have Java...

And firefox has it built in.

Well, that's the thing - they use IE.

If I could use the little "Register Custom Control" for a Java Applet or Firefox, I wouldn't have to go into the Mac lab to Remotely Access My Computer.

Any ideas?
