    navigateToURL not working on Mac Projector with Firefox as Default Browser

    Webshark2000 Level 1

      I'm making a CD with both a PC (exe) and Mac (app) projector file on it.  I have a button that navigates the user to our client's website with the following code:


      var webBtnURL:String = "http://www.clientswebsiteURL.com";

      web_btn.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, gotoWebsite);

      function gotoWebsite(e:MouseEvent):void
           navigateToURL(new URLRequest(webBtnURL), "_blank");



      This works perfectly on the PC projector file, with either Firefox or IE as the default browser.  However, I've found that if Firefox is the default browser on the Mac side, it just opens Firefox and navigates to a blank page.  If Safari is the default browser it works fine.  The Mac I was testing this on was a PowerPC instead of an Intel Mac, so I don't know if that makes a difference or not, but it had the latest version of Firefox on it.


      Any help would be appreciated.
