    Opening a new browser window from flash

    robin_flasher
      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 2.0.0.6 (I'm on 2.0.0.11) 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?
