[fpc-pascal] XPCOM and freepascal

Dear list,

I wonder if it's possible to develop extensions (aka Add-Ons) for
Firefox (or in my case Thunderbird). I'm totaly unfamiliar to the
stuff right now. But the advantage I could think of is 1) I don't know
C++ and 2) it is easy to cross compile code for different platforms.

Writing extensions without javascript needs XPCOM bindings. I saw that
there're some for using the gecko rendering engine in Firefox. Is
there a more general thing to access XPCOM? Anybody has experience
with this? I'm a total C++ noob.

Any help would be appreciated.
