Default multiple tabs disappear

Recently my browser started to repeatedly lose the ability to support multiple tabs. In Internet Explorer 8, I click on the drop-down menu arrow on the right side of the Command Bar's Home button, select Add or Change Home Page from that drop-down menu, and then select "Use the current tab set as your home page" in the Add or Change Home Page dialog box. Then I launch another instance of the browser and close the original one. Then I've got multiple tabs. Sometimes they'll still be there the next time I boot up, but after a couple times, they're gone again. I have an installation of Windows thatís only a few weeks old (so I doubt any files are corrupted), and all my antivirus and antimalware software tells me Iím as clean as a whistle. How do I fix this?

BTW, here is what's selected in IE | Tools | Internet Options | General tab | Tabs | Settings:

Enable Tabbed Browsing
Warn me when closing multiple tabs
Enable Quick Tabs
Enable Tab Groups
Always open pop-ups in a new window
A new tab in the current window

Default Re: multiple tabs disappear

You should uninstall IE8, it is a bloated piece of trash that is very very buggy. Internet Explorer 7 is more compatible as well as more stable. Try this:

Add/Remove Programs / Show Updates / Internet Explorer 8
