Close a Window -- Permission Denied?

My system uses popup windows to show data and stores their window handles in a array (openedWindows).  On timeout, I loop through the array to close all of these windows, but I have trouble closing a window that contains a PDF.

In this section of code:
      for ( var x = 0; x < openedWindows.length; x++ )
            openedWindows[x].close();
I get the error "Permission Denied" when reaching a window containing a PDF.  Other windows (like an About... box) close just fine.

I need to find a way to close all of the popups in the array, including PDFs.

If the content comes from another domain or even port, then you will not be allowed.

You can put the pdf in a frameset and close the window then:

fset.html:

<frameset rows="100%,*" onLoad="top.contentFrame.location=unescape(location.search.substring(1))">
<frame name="contentFrame" src="blank.html">
</frameset>

link:
w=new Array();
function winOpen(url) {
  w[w.length]=window.open('fset.html?'+escape(url),.....)
}
