I have tried to solve this issue from other sources such as googling and the IE 8 forum with no luck.
When I go to Page --> New Window
When New Window is clicked it opens the same website I am on.
Under tab browsing settings I have set it to open "Your first home page":
This has NOT corrected the issue. Is there another way to make this setting and have it work.
It is a pain especially when it opens a page such as this site where I am logged in.
