How to cover up a webpage url, in the address bar

I have a website running where we host video files for customers
Now what happens on the site is that they click a link (that is covered up so they can't see what url they're going to ) this video pops up into a set 1024x768 window, BUT the problem is that the full filename and location is still show in the address bar of the pop up window.
e.g https://website/files/filename.exe

Is there a way to disable the address bar in my code or "mask" it?

Will work under IE, but firefox always display the address bar.
<script type="text/javascript">
<!--
window.open ('popup.html', 'mywindow', config='height=100, width=400, toolbar=no, menubar=no, scrollbars=no, resizable=no, location=no, directories=no, status=no')
-->
</script>

Open in new window
