It can do it through a 3rd party plugin called NSPluginwrapper

That's fine for Linux, but what about MacOS? Of course, Mozilla has always put Mac support on the back burner. Still can't use Firefox without running down my battery -- it prevents the computer from going to sleep after a period of inactivity. This bug has been in the database for a LONG time with no attention.

Mozilla should just drop the Mac version entirely.

I can't believe how many bugs I came across that were FF/Mac specific. You'd think the rendering engine would be consistent across platforms but...not really. I came across other bug reports from people who assumed that testing in FF/Windows meant it would work fine in FF/OSX. Mozilla really treats the OSX version as second rate.

Oh and with the same ajax project Chrome had zero cross-platform issues. Chrome was just a pleasure to work with. IE8 wasn't a big deal either.
