Hello,

Hello, I'm triying to close a window that I have opened (as a popup window) using window.close() but It
doesn`t work on Internet explorer (it works on firefox)

Here is the code

I am surprised that it works in Firefox, you must have it set to do it.

It is a security setting to keep you from destroying a person's history, removing toolbars, etc. Leave the window alone! Plus what happens if a pop up blocker would block the pop up and also close the window.
