As far as I know, there is no access of Acrobat JavaScript from the browser
level, nor vice versa. DOM does not apply to PDF.

You have to realize that JavaScript is a general purpose language, to which
extensions have been written. The extensions that do all the things you're
used to seeing are Netscape's browser extensions to the core language.
Those extensions are built on top of the core language. There are also
server extensions (which can do I/O, etc.) built on top of the core

Acrobat JavaScript builds its own extensions on top of the core language.
As with server extensions, the Acro extensions know nothing about what's
happening in the browser, nor do the browser extensions allow access to
server methods, etc.
