You are trying to load a file from the user's PC, and that will not work.

There is no fix. It works in IE because there is a "viewer" that was loaded using a technology that is no longer supported because of security holes, and it was only supported in IE and Firefox.

IE doesn't exist anymore and Firefox dropped support for it a while ago.

You have to load the data and parse it into a grid yourself or use a 3rd party grid that can parse the data for you and show it. In either case, the file has to be on the server for that to happen. You cannot load it from a file on the client-side.
