Windows 7: Switching tabs while page loads

01 Mar 2012   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate (32bit)
Switching tabs while page loads

Hi there,

I am running IE 8 and lately noticed that when I click on some links and then immediately try switching to another tab, I am unable to do so. An example screenshot is attached. It takes a few seconds and after that the tab opens.

In the screenshot, you will see the mouse "hand" icon instead of the usual pointer icon. Sometimes, instead of the hand icon, I also see the hour-glass icon...
