1) Script Title: DHTML Window Widget

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex8/dhtmlwindow/index.htm

3) Describe problem: I need a way to REALLY close a window, as in clear it out, delete it, purge, remove memory, whatever you want to call it. Currently that widget just hides it and I'm not having much luck getting it to actually go away. I'm trying to use it for something that creates many many popups but once they are used they should go away entirely to free up the memory. I'm running into the problem where I have too many hidden windows filling up my memory and slowing down or hanging the browser entirely.

Usually emptying the window's contents upon closing should be enough to alleviate any memory problems you may have due to too many windows being hidden but still present. See this thread: http://www.dynamicdrive.com/forums/showthread.php?t=21344
