IE8 on Win7Pro box, clicking link messes up tab
Posted on 2011-09-16
We have an app that we interface using IE8. I just set up a new user on a Win7Pro box and have IE8 set to open new tabs in same window. This way we don't have a zillion instances of IE8 open, there is only one window with many tabs. That is all fine. The problem on this machine that we don't experience on XP Pro boxes is that when an IE8 tab has an email link somewhere on the page and we click, it does open a new Outlook email, but, the tab becomes a new, blank tab that has the email address in the address bar of the tab? We have to hit the "back" arrow to get back to the page the tab had been displaying. This does not happen on XP Pro IE8 tabs. On those machines we can press an email link that is displayed on an IE8 tab and the tab does not change. How do I fix this?
