This is function being called on page with cancel button.
        function CancelClick() {
            window.self.close();
        }

Code used to call the above page

            this.winNotes.AutoLoad.Url = System.Web.Configuration.WebConfigurationManager.AppSettings["Te"] + "/views/Note/Add.aspx;
            this.winNotes.LoadContent();
            this.winNotes.Show();

In FF, window.close() will close only if opened via window.open:

window.close

try the following:

function winClose()
{
var win=window.open("","_self");
win.close();
}

Open in new window

or
function winClose()
{
window.top.opener=null;
window.close();
}

Open in new window

or
function closeWindow()
{
window.open('','_parent',''); 
window.close();
}

Open in new window


if not set your firefox browser:

1.

input "about:config " to your firefox address bar and enter;

2.

make sure your "dom.allow_scripts_to_close_windows" is true

I cannot open the window using window.open as it is being called programatically from other app.

you can try the following:

ScriptManager.RegisterClientScriptBlock(Page, GetType(Page), "close", "window.close();", True);

Open in new window

if its not working try:
protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)    
{
    Page.ClientScript.RegisterOnSubmitStatement(typeof(Page), "close", "window.onunload = CloseWindow();");
}

Open in new window


and in your aspx page add closePage function:
function closePage() {
    window.close();
}

Open in new window

Not sure if I understand your scenario but if you would like to close a page from a button click I usually do the following. Add an image to your page which will prevent the page from doing a postback. We're using nice images which looks like a button.

Then in the code behind of the same page you add the following

imgCancel.Attributes.Add("onclick", "window.close();");

You can also force a refresh on the parent page causing it to reload.
