You should be able to get around the security policy with XUL in
Firefox, or with an ActiveX control in MSIE.  In the Netscape
Navigator era there was a security policy Java object so you could
turn the security stuff on and off if the user gave permission from a
pop-up dialog.  I've been away from that scene for a while so I don't
know if Firefox has anything like it.
