self.close and parent.location in one link

Hi All,
I have a problem with a simple (as I thought till now) thing:
I want to make a link in a child-window which would change site in the
parent-window and along with closing child window. The parent window
name is "main". A made a link like this in the child-site:

<a href="new_addre ss.html" target="main" class="about"
onclick="javasc ript:main.locat ion='new_addres s.html';self.cl ose();">
change and close </a>

but it does not work.
I tried also window.close(), window.close(se lf) and alo put it all in
href instaed of onclick - without success. Although the page in "main"
changes to what I want, but the pop-up is still open.
Strange is that self.close() invoked without anything before it work

Do you have any idea how can I solve this problem?

Thanks in advance and best regards,

What about are you talking when you say "parent" window ?
Are you in a framed page ?
(and you really talk of parent's frame or container of the frame)
A made a link like this in the child-site:
and ... what could be a "child-site" ?
<a href="new_addre ss.html" target="main" class="about"
onclick="javasc ript:main.locat ion='new_addres s.html';self.cl ose();">
change and close </a>

but it does not work.
What is not working ?
You can't close a frame (or iframe), the more you can do is to hide it,
or to suppress it from main page's DOM tree.

If you're talking of framed page (frameset) it is something like :
onclick="parent .main.location = ...
or simply :
onclick="parent .location = ...
and you cant "close" the iframe or frame from its loaded file.
(in any case by 'self.close()' )
I tried also window.close(), window.close(se lf)
So youren't in a framed page and you're talking about *mother* and
*daughters* windows (popups), no ?

The 'mother' is the "opener" of the 'daughter' and not hers "parent"
In JS a 'parent' is always a 'container' and never an ancestor (previous
and independent object).

<a href="new_addre ss.htm"
onclick="opener .location=this. href; self.close()">M odify</a>

The html target cant reach the 'opener', a target must be an html name
of something displayed in the same window (ie: another frame).

It works on Konquerer though. I remember it works on IE too. I've tried window.close() too. Doesn't work on Firefox also. I've also tried to create a function. It doesnt work on Firefox also. Bottomline is: Firefox doesn't accept window.close() or self.close()? Are there ways to rectify the issue? Please advise.
