    Hey all,

    Strange issue on my Windows XP Pro/SP2 system using IE7 beta 2. I have a few
    shortcuts on my desktop of sites I regularly visit. After installing IE7,
    when I click on these shortcuts, two browser instances open. One browser
    instance has the site, the other browser instance is simply a blank page.
    I'm guessing this isn't normal behavior - is there something in the IE7
    settings I might be missing?

    OK. Figured this one out quick. I disabled tabbed browsing and when it is
    disabled, for some reason every shortcut will open two browser windows. Kind
    of a strange behavior, but remedied by enabled the tabs.
