Windows 7: IE10 displays wrong page on various tabs

IE10 displays wrong page on various tabs


I've tried searching all over the net, but I wasn't able to find anyone reporting this issue (or, maybe I just couldn't find the right key word to describe this issue). The problem is, when I have multiple tabs in IE10, it begins to have this weird issue where if I click on a different tab to switch to that page, IE10 still displays the page I was on before. The funny thing is, if I move my mouse over the page, the location of the links, etc are actually of the new page I switched to. If I view page source, it also confirms that I am in fact on the right page, so it's just the display that's wrong. I already tried resetting IE10, but the problem came right back. I don't have this issue with any other browsers. If anyone knows any fix for this, please let me know. Please don't tell me to use different browsers, as I don't consider that a solution (I already have firefox, and I have a reason why I want to keep using both IE and firefox on my PC, chrome is out of the window d/t its sneaky privacy invasion features).

Thank you,

That does seems to be an interesting issue one which I haven't encountered "yet" lol,
Open ie,
Use Alt+TO or gear symbol and Internet options,
Delete browser history Settings button,
Cache and databases section and Uncheck allow databases, Close.
Delete browser history and see if the issue returns.
Just to add when you delete your browser history Uncheck the top box then delete.
