trying to save a file using javascript

my code looks something like this
document.open("text/html","replace")
document.execCommand('SaveAs',false,'*.pdf')
The code invokes the file dialog with a tile of "Save HTML Document" and save as type of html & text files only. How can i put all files or *.* in the save as type dropdown ? and also can i change the title to "Save As" only ...the kind that comes up when we usually do save target as on a web page...
thanx for ur help

I do not think there is a way to do it...
 
With a little knowledge, a cast iron skillet is non-stick and lasts a lifetime.
