Like WinEmbed, is there a simple c++ sample to embed firefox in mac os cocoa applications?
Thanks in advance.

Embedding support was abandoned when Firefox 4.0 was released 3 years ago. This is why the Camino project attempted to switch to Webkit and ultimately died.
Tip of the day: If it has "toolbar" in the name, it's crap.

So, does it mean that it is not possible for a cocoa application to upgrade the version of gecko SDK after 4.0?

Apparently there's a new Embedded API, but it appears to be for Mobile?

You probably need to get on an IRC channel and ask the developers.
