Why does IE9 fail to load pages in new tabs?

Whenever I click on a link in a window that opens a new tab, or use Ctrl+ click, I get a new tab with nothing in it, just the original page’s URL in the address bar.

    I found something

    try to launch the Internet Explorer 8 or
    9 as an Administrator

    (Go “Start” – All Program - right click on the IE icon, then
    “Run as administrator”).

    New tabs are working with me now, I’m using Win 7.


    Good luck!!

    Or, hey, here's a better idea - install a better internet browser. There is no excuse for using IE, ever. The latest version does not fix anything, and is no different to every past iteration of the most useless non-web-standards-compliant software ever. If every website in the world could remove the additonal code required to make them work in IE, the web would be a much faster place.

      I couldn't agree more.

    Click Start, input Internet Explorer, choose to start Internet Explorer (with no Add-ons), does it work here? If it works with no Add-ons, try to manage the Add-ons, enable them one by one to find which cause this issue

    Tools > Internet Options > Advanced Tab > Reset button.

    Try the follow steps if the above failed.

    1. Quit all programs that are running.

    2. Click Start, click Run.

    3. Type regsvr32 urlmon.dll, then click OK.

    4. When you receive the "DllRegisterServer in urlmon.dll succeeded" message, click OK.

    5. If this doesn't resolve the problem, type each of the following one by one:







    If all doesn't work, try to reinstall the Internet Explorer 9.

      I have the same problem, you gave a solution but for which Windows ?

        Internet Explorer is available only for Windows Vista and Windows 7. Hence the solution is for either of those (very similar) versions of Windows.

          lol, khalid actually had a valid point there. Also Internet Explorer has been around for years(1995), you can even get IE for win3.1 O0o0 yeah ! and every other windows based operating system there after...

          Just thought you might like to know.

          Ack, I meant Internet Explorer 9! Of course IE has been around for ages.
