This is a known issue. The Mozilla browser component doesn't work in exactly the same way as the IE one (technical description: IIRC, it presents a slightly different DOM which breaks Awasu's auto-discovery feature).

This is probably because of the difference between a browser component and an actual browser. A browser component just draws a web page but a full-blown browser adds a whole load of features on top of it e.g. tabs, plugins, phishing checks, etc. Awasu only uses the Mozilla or IE browser component and so doesn't get all the extra features that the full-blown Mozilla or IE browsers offer.
