Microsoft Edge in IE Mode - Closing dialog

Hi,

I am using Microsoft Edge in IE Mode because I need to open a Silverlight application.
To open the Silverlight application I used window.open(url).
When the Silverlight application is closed, a dialog is shown to confirm the closing of the window. Image attached below.
Is there any way to block the dialog from opening? I just want to force the window to close.

Thanks

Are you facing the same behavior in case you open the website using Internet Explorer too?

@AntonioSimonini-7767,
I suggest you refer to the steps below that may help you to suppress the said popup.
1. Open Internet Options.
2. On the General tab, click on the Tabs button.
3. Uncheck the Warn me when closing multiple tabs option.
4. Click Ok to close the popup.

After that restart the computer and again try to test the issue in the IE mode to see whether it fixed.

Unfortunately the problem persists in IE Mode.

@AntonioSimonini-7767,
If possible for you then just for testing purposes, try to go to the Internet Options-> Advanced tab and click on the Reset button.
It will reset the IE browser to its default settings. After that again try to check for the issue.

I tried to reset all advanced settings and then restart the computer but it doesn't work.

Could it be an edge problem? Any edge setting?
I tried also to change the security settings in Internet Explorer Settings but nothing to do.
It seems that when the Silverlight Application ask Edge to close, Edge (IE Mode) cannot be closed without the user permission.

@AntonioSimonini-7767,
you can notice that the popup is shown by the IE browser, so there is no setting from the Edge browser side that can help to suppress this popup.
Just for testing purposes, can you please try to disable the Protected mode for the relevant security zone to see whether it makes any difference?
Let us know about your test results.

No change even after disabling the Protected mode.
Let me know if there are other tests that I can do.

Thanks

@AntonioSimonini-7767,
I want to confirm with you that you are manually closing the tab or the site is closing the tab? If you try to close the tab manually then also you see this popup?

The site is closing the tab. If I close the tab by pressing the X button (top right) the popup doesn't appear. The problem is when the site is internally trying to close the window.

@AntonioSimonini-7767,
I try to test the issue on my side but I did not get any dialog while closing the window from the main window.
Below is my test result.

If possible can you show some sample code for closing the window?
