    getURL("mailto: opens unwanted safari window

      CS3 Actionscript 2.0:

       

      I'm trying to get a nested movie clip to open the default mail app. on release. I used the on (release){ getURL("mailto:. . . script below,

      which opens the mail window fine, but it also opens a blank browser window (Mac OS). Can someone tell me how to stop this from occurring?

       

      I see this question crops up a lot but after many searches I haven't been able to find the solution anywhere. Forgive me, but I'm new to Flash/Actionscript. My script:

       

       

      onClipEvent (enterFrame) {

      if (this.hitTest(_root._xmouse, _root._ymouse, true)) {

      this.nextFrame();

      } else {

      this.prevFrame();

      }

      }

      on (release){

          getURL("mailto:gg@ggillilandnyc.com");

      }    

       

      Thanks in advance!
