For security reasons, you can not browser window/tab through Javascript windows.close() function, unless it is opened/created by your web applications/site.

window.close() or self.close() will work, only if window is open by javascript


function openWin() {
    myWindow ="", "myWindow", "width=200, height=100");   // Opens a new window

function closeWin() {
    myWindow.close();   // Closes the new window

Well, you can try this hack:
function CloseWindow() {
  var cWindow =, '_self');

Open in new window

Basically, it simulates the opening of the window in itself and closes it right after.
It should work everywhere.
