Never seen "window.opener.location.reload()" before.  Here's a page that claims one solution: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en/iewebdevelopment/thread/0c014e78-8d35-4df3-93da-7f6a30b4ed8b

"javascript:window.opener.location.reload();self.close();" doesn't make any sense to me.  

window.open() opens a new window, window.location.reload() reloads the current window.  I don't understand what the two do together.

@Dave: It is perfectly correct code
window.opener.location.reload() will reload the window that spawned the popup
self.close() will close the popup

We also need to see the code that opened the window and if the code you posted might live in an iframe

That seems to be a vista+ option

Let's first see if it is not due to other things like
<a href="someurl" onclick="window.open(....)">click</a>
without a return false, which may unload the opener invisibly
