Javascript extraction of file info from a domain browser window.

I have generated a browser window in Javascript using:  window.location = "ftp://domain"  I would like to browse to a file of interest and then extract the path to that file.  I am somewhat new to Javascript and am wondering whether a Treewalker object should do the trick?

And even if you could, the javascript would not let you due to the "Same Origin" policy that stops you form monitoring sites from other domains, protocols or ports.

In JavaScript you cannot use ftp protocol with JavaScript Document Object Model. The DOM instantiates only http and https protocol document object model.
