ActionScript: IE8 navigateToURL bug and workaround

Flash player on IE8 has a bug: the call to actionscript function navigateToURL(urlRequest) always opens in a new window.

The workaround is to use ExternalInterface to create on the fly a function and call it:

public class YourUtilsClass {
	public static function navigateToURL( url:String ) : void {"function winOpen() {'" + url + "'); }");
