Ajax Question

window.open() is blocked by browser when is called from promise

I have code like this:

window.open('https://api.instagram.com/oauth/authorize/',
'_blank',
'width=700,height=500,toolbar=0,menubar=0,location=0,status=1,scrollbars=1,resizable=1,left=0,top=0,modal=yes');


This works fine when is called from any place of code, but when I use it in promise (see below), it is always blocked by browser. Any suggestions?

action().success(function (r) {
// window.open(...);
}


Promises are from angular.

The promise fires in response to you getting the HTTP response back from the Ajax request. That isn't a user triggered event, so popups are blocked. Use the window the user gives you instead of creating a new one.
