Bug found: 'Close window'-action doesn't always work

Hey all,

Today I found that the ‘Close window’-action does not always work. I found out the following:

  • It does work when you preview it from Axure
  • It does work when you access the published link by clicking the link in Axure (see screenshot)
  • It does not work when you copy the published link and paste it in the browser and then access the prototype
  • It does not work when you type the link directly via the browser

And by not working I mean that the ‘Close window’-action does not actually close the window/tab. I press on the call-to-action and in the trail I can see that the ‘Close window’-action is initiated, but the window/tab is not closed.

Can someone tell me why this functionality only works when the prototype is initiated from within Axure?
