No, you can't do this. It's a huge security risk.

No, that's a huge security risk. If any browser allows scripts to run other applications on a user's computer, that allows hackers to run anything on anyone's computer.

theoretically (if you had the C source code of IE) you could compile it in asm.js to open IE inside FireFox
