    Getting past browser pop-up blocker

    braaivleis

      Good day All,

       


      Today my question to you is this. Is there a way to get past browser pop-up blocking in my Flex application?

       

      I have a loop that goes through a list of reports to print, and for each report it uses the navigateToURL(request, '_blank') method to call the appropriate Java servlet.

       

      All this works fine in IE8 and Chrome, but in Firefox it only gets the first report. All the others get blocked by the built-in browser pop-up blocker.

       

      I have tried the advice on various blogs and websites, including the following:

      Any other help would be greatly appreciated.

       

      Thank you in advance
