If you mean having a button or text that can be clicked on to close a window, its:
<FORM>
<INPUT TYPE='BUTTON' VALUE='Close Window' onClick='window.close()'>
</FORM>

This will create a button for the purpose, however you could just use a text link like this:
<a href="java script:window.close()">Close</a>

If you are wanting to automatically close a window, this is a little more complex...look here:

It worked for me in firefox. Put this code in a test page and try it again:

<html>
<title>SSOne (JavaScript: Close Window)</title>
<body bgcolor="#FFFFFF">


<a href="javascript:window.close();">Close This Window</a>

<br>

<form>
<input type=button value="Close This Window" onClick="javascript:window.close();">
</form>


</body>
</html>

Hello!
If you are trying to close a popup, window.close() doesn't work.
See your javascript console for more information. I'm having the same problem

Bye

Could you put the following code somewhere?
onLoad='javascript:window.close();'

Hello!,

The command window.close() works on IE6 but it doesn't on FireFox.

Here the script called in the popup window:

<script language="javascript">
<!--
function closeSeqQuesWindowOK() {
... some non relevant lines ...
window.close();
}
document.onload = closeSeqQuesWindowOK();
// -->
</script>

I guess FF has some security restrictions, am I right?
Any ideas? Is there any way to make it work?

Thanks!

Works fine for me. Running Firefox v1.0.6 as well.
Only thing I can think of is are you running Norton 2005 AntiVirus? I have clients who cannot view some items using Javascript with Norton 2005. But then, that is the only common thing I have found why they can't view it.
Perhaps it is just my site. :tazz:

You can only close windows with Firefox if you have done the window with javascript. javascript:window.close() or javascript:self.close(). It is a feature in Firefox - maybe security feature

You can also put simple script on which will automatically close the window or frame after a certain time.
