I have a parent window and a child window.

click on submit button then
pop-up window(child window) should closed

On you parent page
<form name="received" method="post" action="#"></form>

On your child page
function PassToParent(obj) {
      opener.document.getElementById('received').innerHTML = obj;

<form name="child">
<input type="textbox" name="ABC" value="ABC">
<input type="button" value="submit" onClick="PassToParent(this.form.innerHTML);self.close();">

Browsers are not required to save the state (form information - or anything set in JavaScript) pages when asking for a refresh.
A nice feature of better browsers is, when a page was loaded by a "post" method, when asking for "refresh" the browser will ask you if to resubmit the "post" data.
Plus if the page was created with a "get" with parameters in the URL query, any refresh will include the state.
