ActiveX, Firefox and Ubuntu are all free computer programs available online. ActiveX, a computer framework similar to Flash, can be downloaded alongside Shockwave from the Adobe website (see References). Firefox, a web browser made by Mozilla, is open-source, which means that users can make programming changes to improve the program. Ubuntu, another open-source program, is an operating system that uses the Linux platform. Playing ActiveX with Firefox on Ubuntu is not much different than doing so on Windows.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Open the Firefox web browser on your Ubuntu operating system.

  2. 2

    Go to the Adobe Shockwave website to download and install Adobe Shockwave plus ActiveX.

  3. 3

    Click "Agree and Install Now" to download and install the software. You have now successfully installed ActiveX on your computer.

  4. 4

    Navigate to a website that uses ActiveX to make sure the installation worked.
