If you actually want a separate browser window, rather than a popup window within the Flex application, you are probably going to need an actual separate flex application to run in the popup, and then use a localConnection object to communicate the data for it to display.
That is a bit complicated. Are you certain that you can not simply use a normal Flex popUp?
I'd definitely try to use a Flex popup... but the flash.net.navigateToURL method is a simple way to open a popup window in a new browser. You can pass any data needed by the new page using the URLRequest and/or URLVariables. The URL you navigate to could, of course, be another Flex application if necessary. I use this only when I need to open a popup window on another site, or an HTML formatter report or something similar.
Concerning yourself with the size of the popup window may be a bad design choice also. I, for example, have my browser configured to open all popups in a new tab regardless of sizing constraints imposed by the designer. If it is absolutely necessary for you to have control over the size of your popup window, you should follow the advice given by others and use a Flex popup.
