I'm currently working with a Thunderbird Add On which opens a pop-up every time someone hovers over a link. In this pop-up, the user should be able to click on a link which opens a new window or tab in a browser (one that the user set default).
var win = **window.open**("www.google.com", "_blank", "chrome,centerscreen");
Is what I tried for this, but this just opens a Thunderbird window with no address bar or anything like that, and the content in this window doesn't do anything if I click on it.

var ww = Components.classes["@mozilla.org/embedcomp/window-watcher;1"] .getService(Components.interfaces.nsIWindowWatcher); var win = ww.**openWindow**(null, "www.google.com", "_blank", "chrome,dialog=no,all,centerscreen", null);
