If the window is not opened by JavaScript, how can you get the window reference? If there is no window reference stored with JavaScript, how can you close the window through JavaScript?

Have you tried simply window.close()?

yes i have tried but in firfox its not working......

What you have experienced is part of the 'protection' browsers give you while on the wild...
Closing (and opening) windows from code is considered 'popup' activity and not tolerated - by default.
So when executing window.close(); browsers will send the user a message, and ask if he agree to close the window...The only exception is when the window was opened by window.open(), which is not your case.
You have to consider your application design...
   
The close() method closes the current window.

JavaScript
<form method="post">
<input type="button" value="Close Window">
onclick="window.close()">
</input></form>

I believe that OP's problem that such a JS command will prompt the end user with a somehow confusing question. He wants to bypass it...
