Interactive date box not translating when opened in browser

I have an interactive form with a date box set to mm/dd/yyyy. In Acrobat if I try to type January 11, 1991 in the field as 01111991, it gives me the error telling me its not formatted correctly. Which is what I need it to do. If the form is opened in a browser, and I repeat the same process, it loads the date as 01/11/2091. It does this because the browser tries to fix the date and places slashes where they would be at the 3rd and 6th digits, creating 01/11/91 and interpreting it as 01/11/2091. 

 

Is there a way I can make it interpret the correct date?

No, the script that is used to format the date in Acrobat doesn't work in the browser. The browser does it's own thing.
