Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise - "First tab" in IE9 in Remote Desktop bugs

IE version: 9.0.8112.16421 - Update: 9.0.12 (KB2761465)

No java and no flash installed.

Steps:

Logs on remote desktop with user
Start Internet Explorer (homepage www.google.com loads just fine)
Enter some new url in the adress-field in IE9 (ie www.cnn.com) and watch it "search" forever (red arrow points to the grey rotating circle in image below)
ie9 first tab bugs
Enter some other url and the same thing happens, it just "hangs there" indefinitely
Press on some of the links on the homepage (google) and they work
From there (after pressing some of the google links on google homepage) go to cnn.com or whatever and it works
Start a new tab and it works just fine as well
Its a relatively new server, so I am not entirely sure but I do believe this worked before (some windows update or gpo-change perhaps?)

Any ideas as to why this is happening?

Most likely you are trying to access the Internet from inside your DMZ and your Network Admin has not enabled - proxy maybe to the Internet?  I know that our servers are locked down..  The other thought that comes to mind with IE8+ is compatibility mode..

HTH,

I am the network admin and apart from a couple of sites that I manually added we're not locked down in any way.

And it works in tab number two in IE9. Its just the first tab that bugs.....

Right..  But you said Google Works and CNN does not..  Then I would be looking at Flash, Plugins, etc.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

If you reread my first post you see that if I open CNN in a new tab it works....also it works if I on the homepage first click on one of the google-links and THEN go to cnn

[*]Press on some of the links on the homepage (google) and they work
[*]From there (after pressing some of the google links on google homepage) go to cnn.com or whatever and it works
[*]Start a new tab and it works just fine as well

Rereading my post I totally get why it can be misunderstood though. :)

So - since all pages work there has to be some problem with this "first-tab-thing" in IE not flash/java/plugins...hmmmm

Seems that installing the latest updates and rebooting the server was all it took to fix this. Sorry for the trouble.
