Did you try the other posts in that page or did you try the one at the top only?

	winPop = window.open(strURL,'name','height=375,width=415,left=150,top=200,toolbar=no,resizable=no,scrollbars=no');
	winPop.focus();
	window.close();

}

From what I can gather it is not possible due to security restrictions in IE. As I said in my initial post, I wasn't sure if it worked in later versions of IE. To be fair, I can understand why. If I had a load of tabs open in an IE window or Firefox window and then some page closed them all for me I would be pretty narked.

This isn't possible.
