    Opening a new browser window from flash

      Does anyone know of a method fo opening a link in a new window in firefox from within flash that isn't blocked by the popup blocker. It seems like the security in FF (I'm on has been tightened to prevent any _blank or window.open calls from flash getting through. I've tried the standard getURL, fscommand and ExternalInterface call to a javascript window.open method. Nothing now works.

      I understand the need for the popup blockers, but this is a legitimate popup only invoked on user interaction (click) - the same window.open call in an onClick event outside of flash works fine and I guess it is blocked from within flash because there is no way of knowing if the call is invoked from user interaction or automatically - but seems a shame.

      So any other way of getting a new browser window to open from within flash in firefox?
