You have no control over the browser window properties except for a window you open yourself (using code like window.open("newpage.htm","","width=400,height=450").  Losing the close button is a bad idea because it is very annoying.  How are people supposed to close the window when they are finished?  I know you can use things like ALT + F4 but does everybody else?

With that said, there are various controls you can use to set the properties of a window you open.  To lose the X in the top right though can only be done in IE and can only be done by setting fullscreen and then resizing.  Details on this can be found at http://www.htmlgoodies.com/beyond/notitle.html

I agree with dij8, it is very annoying when sites try to mess about with your browser.  Don't do it, unless you get a kick out of irritating people ;-)

Glad to help.

Kind of wondering about the B though.  If you needed more all you had to do was ask.  An answer that isn't what you wanted but still correct doesn't mean it deserves less.  You have been around for a while, even though you haven't asked too many questions.  I would have thought you would know how it works.  Have a look at http://www.experts-exchange.com/jsp/cmtyQuestAnswer.jsp#3 (found via the link at the bottom of this page)

Just a friendly tip.  Always willing to help more. :-)
