IE prevents Window.close()

Hi ..
After running a script the below IE11 pops out the below message:
The web page you are viewing is trying to close the window. Do you want to close this window? Yes|No
I tried different settings in the security tab like:
"Display Mixed Content"
"unchecked "Enable protected mode"
But none help so far. Does anyone know what option i need to change to prevent the popup.
Your Quick Prompts Highly Appreciated.

Thanks.

Nothing to do by changing the settings.
Use this:
function quitBox(cmd)
{  
    if (cmd=='quit')
    {
        open(location, '_self').close();
    }  
    return false;  
}

The attached works for IE and Edge (but not Firefox and Chrome).
If you have other code that works for those browsers, maybe you can do a browser sniff and branch as needed.

Thank you All for your help.

@Sam;
That is a great workaround. How does it work in a hta script 'window.close()'.

Thanks.

It works for an .hta as well ... please see attached (remove the .txt extension).

Even is basically the same as mine, it's work well.The idea is to load self and close it. Another is to first empty the inner and next close,because an empty element are not throwing the page protection routine.
