    There is an issue with Rad Upload control not loading File Open dialog box in Fire Fix. Please find belwo Rad Upload markup and Javascript function. This javascript function working perfectly in IE but not in Fire Fox because it doesn't allow File Input control to be clicked. Please provide a workaround for this issue.

    Thanks in advance.

    Rad Upload markup:

    <telerik:RadUpload id="fileUploadImport" OnClientAdded="MakeKeyBoardAccessible"      OnClientFileSelected="validateBrowse" ReadOnlyFileInputs="true" EnableEmbeddedSkins="false" Skin="Default" AllowedFileExtensions=".txt"  ControlObjectsVisibility="None"  ToolTip="Browse"  runat="server">
    <Localization Select = "Browse"/>

    Javascript function:

    function MakeKeyBoardAccessible(radUplaod, args) {

            args._row.all[3].onkeydown = function(e) {

                var keycode;

                if (window.event) keycode = window.event.keyCode;

                else if (e) keycode = e.which;

                else return true;


                if (keycode == 13) {

    Hello Bhaskar Rao,

    The click() property on an <input type='file' /> property is not supported in FireFox. It is a browser's decision and there is nothing we can do in order to change that behavior.

    Kind regards,
