Just like the command switchApp(app), when you are in a Windows the following applies: "On Windows, Sikuli searches in the text on the title bar instead of the application name."

You need to change your command to read: closeApp("Firefox") or closeApp("Mozilla Firefox").

In the case of a website test, the text in the title bar may change, depending on the page where the script is.
Is there anyway to bypass this problem ?

Another way to bypass this problem is to have Sikuli open up Windows task manager, select the program from Process List OR Application list and end the program that way.

I forgot to mention you can also use the old Alt + F4 keys to close the current foreground program that is running.
