Why is this so hard? I've read most of the posts on here on similar questions and none of the answers seem to work...

I have a frameset index page with the following code:

<frameset rows="200,*" cols="*" framespacing="0" frameborder="no" border="0">
            <frame name="topFrame" src="head.html" noresize="noresize" scrolling="no" />
            <frame name="mainFrame" src="body.htm" />

In the "topFrame" I have a flash movie with the following getURL tag on a TIMELINE FRAME (not a button) :

getURL("about.htm", "mainFrame");

but the problem is that when the playhead reaches the Timeline MOVIE FRAME that contains this action the about.htm page loads in a new brouser TAB (IE7) window and not in the "mainFrame" I've specified in the getURL tag.

(I need the movie playhead to travel down the timeline before the getURL is triggered that's why the GetURL tag is assigned to the timeline movie frame and not the button).

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
