You have to have the request ask that the response be delivered to a new window, not the same window from which the request comes.

It depends on how you open the request.  If you're clicking an anchor link, add "javascript:  return window.open('" to the front of the url, then add "', '_blank';" to the end of the url.  This changes the url link to a Javascript call that opens the url in a new window.
