If you are using Action Script 3.0 then try this

var request:URLRequest = new URLRequest("http://www.mysite.com/home.htm");
navigateToURL(request,"_parent");

The "_parent" parameter is optional and tells the browser to open the URL in the current window. Use "_blank" to open the page in a new window or other standard link target name.
