Consensus on the WebApps list at W3C was that we didn't want to expose this to web pages. I.e. a File should always represent a real OS-file.

But we can still expose this internally of we have APIs which need to instantiate File objects and return to webpages. But I think we might already have that.

I found |new File()|, but it looks to be only callable from chrome.
test_file_cross_database_copying.html should be rewritten using xul.

Ah, indeed. I think we should keep that current setup.
Comment 4 Jan Varga [:janv] 2012-04-20 05:06:37 PDT
I have a fix for this, it's a part of the patch for bug 726593.
I added a new method to nsIDOMWindowUtils (to get a file object).
Comment 5 Jan Varga [:janv] 2012-06-03 12:57:04 PDT
fixed along with bug 726593
