Sorry I have not been following this thread closely and I am very new to
Rev... but this seems to work

on mouseUp
   -- launch URL ""
   get text of field "x"   -- paste or drag&drop your URL into this field
   launch URL it   -- this launches the default browser using your URL
end mouseUp

Seems as though this would serve as the basis for what you are trying to do
or maybe I misunderstand.
