Navigate plain web page with remote


I’m working on a Tizen web app where we have our own navigation system able to use input from the remote or gamepad. We also have a feature to open a new page linking to an external URL (e.g. support / registration), done with a plain <a target="_self"> link.

My problem is that this new page cannot be navigated at all with the remote. Only a physical mouse appears to work. The same URL opened in the plain Internet app can be navigated with remote-controlled virtual mouse.

Is there a way to either activate the virtual mouse, or get the URL to open in the Internet app?
