In IE8 whenever I try and open a new tab (either ctrl-t or the new tab button) the tab opens, then is closed straight away. Any ideas how I can stop this happening?
(I can open new windows fine, but I much prefer tabs).
I was having the same issue. The following steps fixed it for me:
I think some plugin that gets set by the dialog box is causing a conflict.
Probably addins or conflicting programs
Start it without extensions and see if it happens Run>iexplore -extoff
