IE Mode javascript window.close() is not working

Iron Contributor

On intranet applications window.close() is not working when in IE Mode. It simply does nothing, I can't debug browser in IE Mode as F12 doesn't works, so don't know actual reason. Page is being opened via script using"xxxx","_blank"), and inside that page is button that calls javascript function with window.close(). Pressing button doesn't works in IE Mode. It works in IE and even in Chrome

Thanks for trying IE mode!

Can you please let us know the Edge and OS versions you are using? If you type in edge://version in the address bar and send us the details, that will help.

That was on Windows 7, Edge dev, I think that was version. IE mode crashes on last dev version , so can't check if that works

@mindst Sorry for the delayed response. The fix for this issue should be released in the Win 7 OS update this month. I'll update this thread when we have the KB information.
