Since Firefox 7, it's no longer possible for a web site to move a window in a browser, according to the following rules:

  1. You can't move a window or tab that wasn’t created by window.open.
  2. You can't move a window or tab when it’s in a window with more than one tab.

Specification

DOM Level 0. Not part of any standard.
