Stop close window prompt in  IE8

jhyiesla asked
Last Modified: 2013-12-08
We are rolling out a customized version of IE 8 in our environment. We have an app that spawns a window that then fires up another window wherein the app actually runs. In IE6 this first window just closes when it's done.  In IE8 we always get a prompt asking if we want to close it.  I'd like to have this window function the same as it does in IE6.  I can not find a way, using the IE8 customization wizard to set something that will force the window to just close.  Any thoughts?  I do NOT want to use some script, I want to be able to program it in using the customization wizard.
