FileUploadField gives file path in IE, but only file name in Chrome and Firefox

    FileUploadField gives file path in IE, but only file name in Chrome and Firefox

    When I am using IE, the following code prints out "C:/Users/Documents/.../myFile.xlsx"
    However when I use Chrome or Firefox, it prints "myFile.xlsx".
    Why is this, and how can I get the whole path for every browser?

    Controller:
    public ActionResult UploadSpreadsheet()
    {
        var fileName = Request.Files[0].FileName;
        Debug.WriteLine(fileName);
    }
    View:
                        ...FormPanel()
                            .Url("/Home/UploadSpreadsheet")
                            .Items(items =>
                            {
                                items.Add(Html.X().DisplayField()
                                    .Text("Choose the file you would like to upload:"));
                                items.Add(Html.X().FileUploadField()
                                    .ID("FileUploadField"));
                            }
