Windows 7: Running IE when already open does not open URL in new tab

Running IE when already open does not open URL in new tab

I have a little URL launcher app. If a browser is the active window when I hit the hotkey, the browser is run in a loop with a URL on each loop.

With every other Tabbed Browser, this opens the URLs in Tabs(if the Tabs setting in that browser is set to open in new tabs.) In IE it opens new windows. I set the setting under General => Tabs "open popups in this window in new tabs" but it does not work. It opens in new windows.

Anyone figured this out yet? Seems there's been problems opening in Tabs since V 7.

Hi,

You may want to set it to "Let Internet Explorer decide how pop-ups should open"

I then find that Most/All pop-ups run a new tab


Hope it helps

Thanks for the reply but doesn't work for me. I added MaxThon 3 support for those who need to use IE engine.

The question is, how are you calling the URL to open the new tab or window? The management setting in IE is for links clicked in IE, and unless the call to open a window is done specifically IE won't get the API calls from other applications to open a new tab inside of IE (thus you will keep getting new windows). Given that the shell ultimately handles API calls to open new windows, this behavior is not totally unexpected depending on how your app is designed.

What exactly are you doing to call the URL in your code?

It works in everything else. I have set popups, as they call them, to open in new tabs. It's a known issue since IE7. When the user presses the hotkey on an open browser I get the path to the exe and add the url as command line. It's up to the browser to be set to open additional urls in tabs.

It works with Opera, Firefox, Chrome, MaxThon 2, MaxThon 3. Only one I found where it doesn't work is IE.
