I’d like to know how to do this. I’m open to any suggestions. C#, addons, whatever. Just tell me something that works.

You mean from within the browser? You cant do that. The browser does not allow that for security reasons.

okay, is it possible to open a filedilog form from c# and use that?

Its possible via the javascript api.

Here is a stackoverflow post with some javascript code.
