No it does not use Active X has it`s own plugin...is in program files npupd62.dll -- in a plug-in folder.
By any chance, did you throw it up on a test box first to see exactly what it did (ie, doesn't open any backdoors, etc)?
By my twisted logic, part of the security issues with IE are the ActiveX components, and you need ActiveX to be able to download updates....so does the plug in just make it possible for Firefox to use ActiveX? Which then in turn makes it so ActiveX can be abused through Firefox...
Actually, I don't have a clue if it works that way at all... might be fun to look at though.
