Windows 7: Noob Here with IE8 Question/Problem

Noob Here with IE8 Question/Problem


I have an issue with IE8 and tabs. In IE 7 when browsing forums I could center click my mouse to open multiple threads in different tabs in forums. In IE8 and windows 7 when I open multiple tabs it doesn't navigate away from the original tab, but I have to double click to get back to be able to do anything on the original tab. It is a major PITA for me and I have searched everywhere and haven't found a resolution.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Not sure I completly get what you're saying,

Are you saying you want it to focus on the new tab when you open a new one? You can set this option here for that.

Do you have your mouse set to default double click or single click?

Thanks for the reply

After your thoughts I looked at my middle mouse button in logitech setpoint software. It wasn't set to middle click, it was set to auto scroll.

Thanks for the help.
