IE8 Opens a new window instead of refreshing the current one

Edgerock asked
Last Modified: 2013-12-08
When using a feature in Salesforce.com to import contacts, IE7 would display a pop-up telling me the contact was imported correctly with an OK button displayed.  After clicking the OK button, the original web page was refreshed amd the new information displayed.

With IE8, the same procedure causes a NEW web page to be opened after click the OK button, and it keeps the old page opened as well.  SO instead of refreshing the original page, it just opens a new one with the updated information and leave the old, outdated page open too.

I have been searching the setting to see how to fix this and can't find anything.  Salesforce.com tech support could not give me a solution.  Any thoughts?
