BB10: Using Flash with window.open( url, "_blank:);

I am using the gold webworks SDK with the simulator.


I want to open an external website within a card using the window.open(url, "_blank") method. The problem is the external website I wish to open has elements in it that use adobe flash but I cannot figure out how to enable flash browser the page is opened in.


I've tried adding <feature id="enable-flash"/> to the config.xml of my app, but it doesn't effect the window that is opened. The flash content still isn't rendered.


Anyone have a solution? Only idea I have is to invoke the browser and tell the user they need to enable flash but that is more of a workaround.
