I've serached the options menus, and read this question about disabling tabbed browsing, but that's not what I want to do.

When there is only 1 tab open in IE8, it still shows as a tab, instead of just using the whole window. Is there a way to disable this, such that the tabs at the top only appear when there are multiple tabs open?
