Opening browsers with an Applet

Hi All,
I'm using the appletContext.showDocument(URL, option) method to successfully open up another browser window (extra to the one the applet is running in) to display the URL in the argument.
When the applet runs in IE5 a new browser is started each time the above method is invoked (exactly what I want), but in Netscape it only opens up one other new browser and re-uses it for further invocations of the above method (not what I want).
Can anyone please help.
Cheers, Tony.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
