Blackberry browser triggers popup blocker by using navigateToURL



This is more Flash AS3 than an AIR question, why does the BlackBerry browser popup blocker get triggered by a simple navigateToURL request from an embedded SWF?


btn.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, openWebsite); 

function openWebsite(event:MouseEvent):void {
navigateToURL(new URLRequest("http://www.adobe.com"), "_blank");


Is there a way to open a website without triggering the popup blocker? 

Thanks for any tips Smiley Happy
