Export issues from multiple filters to excel with a gadget

I want to export the issues from 20+ user selected filters in a gadget to different excel files. I've been experimenting with the following in javascript.

http://<jira_server>/sr/jira.issueviews:searchrequest-excel-all-fields/<filter_id>/SearchRequest-<filter_id>.xls?tempMax=1000&os_username=<username>&os_password=<password>>

However, the 'Save As' dialog is displayed for each filter. Is there a way to have a 'Save As' dialog appear only once so the user can specify which directory all the exported files will be saved automatically?

Ideas, better suggestions?

Thank you,

Joyce

Just a note that passing credentials in the URL like that is a bad idea, as it will be historicallyt visible in many places including access logs, browser history, and any proxying services.
