    HTML control doesn't allow browser pop-ups from within page

    David Repas
      I've noticed that pop-ups are not allowed from inside of the mx:HTML control. Both JavaScript popups and the targeting of a new browser window from within both an HTML page or SWF movie doesn't seem to work. I would hope that the user's default browser would be utilized in this sort of instance.

      For example: if I load www.cnn.com using the HTML control into an AIR app - and then click an ad on that site - under normal circumstances a new browser window would be launched - in AIR nothing happens.

      Is this a limitation or is there some sort of workaround?
