IE7 - clicking on link opens another instance of the program and not just a new tab

    I'm using IE7 (7.0.6001.18000) under Vista Home Premium SP1.

    I open IE7 and then click on a link (on my Links toolbar). Instead of IE7
    using the tab from the already opened instance of IE7, another instance of
    IE7 opens and I see my link in that new instance of IE7.

    This doesn't seem right to me .... is this the way it is? Thansk, DH

    I tried a few more times, same thing happened.

    I tried it yet again, and now IE7 reacts how I expect it to.

    Is this a known glitch? Thanks, DH

    Hi,
    If the original page (homepage?) and the new page are in different security
    zones (Trusted sites vs Internet zone) IE7 on Vista will open a new window.
    Is your homepage (or the new page) in Trusted sites? (Internet Options>
    Security)

    Hope this helps,
    Don
