I need to write to a text file from JavaScript

I have an in-house unobtrusive library for jqGrid that I need to debug. Calling the windows.alert() works, but writing to a text file gives me a log of the sequences of the funnction calls. I can not use console.log since I will be comparing IE (where the bug does not appear) and FireFox (where the bug exists).

How can I code this?

Thanks.

You may run in to permissions issues trying to write a file on the local disk. Why not trying to a use cookie instead? http://www.w3schools.com/js/js_cookies.asp
