No, that's not what's happening. I'm not showing the PDF in a browser
window. It's being given to the user with the option to download or view
in a separate application.

So I am fine with the download option. That's what I'm doing now, I
suppose. So since the user is downloading the PDF, they don't need an
in-browser window to view it.

Once the PDF is downloaded/viewed, I want the new window to die by any
means necessary.

Surely there's a way.
