Hi,

How is Mozilla's JavaScript Interpreter integrated with Firefox.exe?
Is it built inside Firefox.exe? Or Exist externally as a plugin? If it is existing externally, then what is the name of the file which contains
JavaScript Interpreter component.

Question is for FireFox 47.0 on Windows 10.

Regards,
SG

Yes and why?

Its called SpiderMonkey and integrated in Firefox codebase, albeit its possible to use it in another products (like Adobe Acrobat used it as Javascript interpreter once) or even standalone https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/nig ... a-central/ - look for Jsshell
