http redirect problem with addfavorite

The following code doesn't work when using IE6 and a url redirect service but does with IE5. This code works using my ISP's address but when I use an http redirect service, to access my web page this code won't work in IE6
Flash lets you call javascript for buttons. The on release is after the user clicks on a button.
My goal is to have a favorite added upon clicking the add favorite button I've created in flash. The SWF is the file flash creates which you can view directly through IE or call it from within an html document.
on (release) {getURL "javascript:window.external.AddFavorite('URL OF PAGE','NAME OF SITE');");
It works when going through IE5 but not IE6 -- any guesses? I know that there are some work arounds in javascript for redirect services but unfortunately, I don't program in javascript at all.
Thank you!
