    For those of you experiencing problems with TABBED BROWSING, there's a quick
    fix that should help you quickly find out what's going on with your browser.
    As always, this is beta software, so expect erratic behaviour even after this
    fix that solved my problem.

    Issue: tabbed browsing results in closure of IE7. Any new tabs openned will
    close the browser, and in some clients it will restart.

    Fix: TOOLS > Internet Options > Advanced (tab) > under the ADVANCED section
    Additional FIX: TOOLS > Internet Options > under GENERAL tab > TABS section
    Save all settings.

    This will disable all non-IE browser extensions. This fix requires a
    restart of IE, so go ahead and restart it, and try out opening new tabs.
    This fixes a large amount of problems with tabbed browsing. Now if you
    absolutely must have these toolbars, then I suggest sticking with IE6 or
    another browser (Mozilla variants, etc). If you want to narrow down the
    problem, you can re-enable browser plugins one by one to find the offending
    file by going to TOOLS > Manage Add-ons > Enable or Disable Add-ons. Once
    you find a problem-plugin(s), please post the offending dll's in this thread,
    as it will provide a quick resource for people to just disable the one plugin
    identified in this thread. This also helps MS identify problems they need to
    work with.
