window.close in opera 7.02

I have a website that used to close the opera browser and only leave a pop up window for a internal intranet website.  For some reason, if I upgrade to opera 7.02 the window.close function will not work.  Can someone explain this?  (For a sample of the code, go to http://www.wosnetworks.com/opera/test.htm)  It did work in Opera 6.05, but the menu I want to use will not work with 6.05 but will work with 7.02.  

What other kind of code would I be able to use to close opera 7.02?  Thanks!

According to this:

Opera 7 does support window.close()

Going by your later question, it does seem to be working..? I have tried it on IE 6, Opera 6, and Opera 7. In both cases, Opera, just closed the main window (IE 6 prompted me first before closing it), and for all 3 browsers I was left with a pop up window, albeit one with a HTTP 404 error.
