Even though you are writing this in ASP, it looks like the problem is in the javascript. Let me clarify. You are trying to write this to the client:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <script>
  2.'http://URL_IPadd:8000/Pages/ValidateUser.aspx?JVId=PW0000001&SessionId=1000&IsAdmin=Y&RoleName=Self','PORTFOLIOTRACKER','   scroll=true,resizable=yes,toolbar=no,location=no,directories=no,dependent=no,fullscreen=no,status=yes,left=0,top=0,height='+screen.height-60+',width='+screen.width-5);
  3. window.opener.close();
  4. </script>
This is a javascript function, and unless you are getting an ASP error this is a javascript issue. Have you checked for javascript errors?

Oh, I see the problem. You are calling window.opener.close() from the same section of code that opens the new page. window.opener refers to the page that opened the current page. You will need to change that to close the current page, or call window.opener.close() from the next page. Let me know if this helps.

Please try this code :

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Response.Write("<script>")
  2. Response.Write("var win'http://URL_IPadd:8000/Pages/ValidateUser.aspx?JVId=PW0000001&SessionId=1000&IsAdmin=Y&RoleName=Self','PORTFOLIOTRACKER',' scroll=true,resizable=yes,toolbar=no,location=no,d irectories=no,dependent=no,fullscreen=no,status=ye s,left=0,top=0,height='+screen.height-60+',width='+screen.width-5);")
  3. Response.Write("win.opener.close();")
  4. Response.Write("</script>")

I am fairly sure that firefox will not allow this happen, regardless of any syntax errors. the ability to close windows/tabs period, is a user-preference in that browser. only pop-ups can be closed that way.

other browsers may follow the same procedures.
