I'm running into the same problem. I have been trying to figure it out for the last three days, and I still haven't come across a solution. I am doing everything correct while watching instruction videos, but again, the _self tag doesn't work and acts as if it's nonclickable, where as _blank works to open the link in a new tab. But I am trying to open the flash button in the same tab.
If anyone has a solution to this problem, I would greatly appreciate it.
I have googled and searched through multiple forums, but all seem to say the same thing, and I still haven't figured out how to get it to work.
This is the code snippet I am using:
navigateToURL(new URLRequest("http://www.mydomain.com/"), "_self");
_blank tag works, but not _self.
