There used to be a plug-in for Netscape that allowed you to run ActiveX but I doubt if it's available any more.You have a number of options:
* Rewrite as a Java applet, downside to this is Windows does not come with Java Virtual Machine now so the user would need to install this in some cases.
* Rewrite using JavaScript. Depends on the functionality you need, in a few cases this won't be possible. Your control looks like some sort of datagrid, the ones produced by ASP.NET are very impressive, they are a combination of client side JavaScript and server side processing.
* Write a plug-in for Mozilla.
