File path not available for file control in firefox

For some security reasons modern web browsers will return only file name instead of file name with directory path from client computer.

To upload a file to the server from client computer you can use the SaveAs method of file control see below.

string filename = Path.GetFileName(fileUpload1.PostedFile.FileName);
fileUpload1.SaveAs(Server.MapPath("Files/"+filename));
