new ActiveXObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")' is working in Internet Explorer not in mozilla, so any other way to do this in javascript for mozilla. Any smart solution please as it is immediate requirement for us

hello, i don't think this possible at all but i'm in no way an expert on this. for developer oriented questions you also might be better off asking them in a specialised forum like http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewforum.php?f=25 since we here at support.mozilla.org are rather focused on support for firefox end-users. thank you for your understanding!
