Has anyone else downloaded IE7 and sometimes when they open up too many tabs (either opening up new ones or right clicking on a link and selecting open in new tab) it CTD's (crashes to desktop)?

Hmmm. I've been using IE7 since its first beta, but have not experienced this. I found out it would slow down a bit with lots of tabs - but again I use very little (about 7- 10 tabs max) since most of my reading is on RSS feed readers.

Yes, and no.

I have it, it works fine, and I tend to have dozens of tabs open across a few different browsers...

I use IE7, I traded Firefox in for it. I tend to use many many tabs but I've started to split the tabs amongst windows when I get to a certain amount. Say if I have 15 tabs open in one window and I want to open more I'll select open in a new browser and continue tabbing from there Wink

Yeah it doesn't happen all the time, it's pretty random. Just happened to me again, had 3 tabs open and went to open up a 4th then it CTD. It's more of a nuisance than a problem. I have firefox as well but I prefer the new IE, it just looks better I suppose =P

I do actually. McAfee site advisor would be classed as one right? I'm using firefox now because the tabs in IE7 dissappeared and then it locked up. I'll get rid of the things that didn't come standard with it to see if that helps.

Yep, and that probably conflicts with IE7's own site checker/phishing detection. I would remove that for now. Or disable it using the Add-on manager tab.

There are few browser addons that are worth having these days, unless you have specialist needs. I prefer to run my browsers 'naked' and totally avoid the perfomance problems I typically see with many 3rd party addons, esp for IE. FF extensions are generally okay, but FF2 is a pretty good browser in its own right.

I use IE7 / FF2 50/50

I have no add-ons at all, except the flash player stuff and the screen capture software. I don't install any toolbars, search stuff and other junk...

I like McAfee's site advisor though. Pretty straight forward; Green = Good, Yellow = Caution, Red = Bad and if it's really bad they will stop you from viewing the site all together.

I did have this issue. It would crash whenever I opened up a new tab, or sometimes it would let me open a couple before crashing.

It turned out to be the Google Desktop Search I was running - the older version I was running turned out to be incompatible with IE7. As soon as I upgraded the software to the latest version all was sweet.

I see the issue has since appeared on the IEBlog (a microsoft blog from the IE7 developers - Google search it) which is quite sane and open and lists a number of the issues that people were having with IE7.

I switched to Firefox there for a while but have switched back to IE7 and have no problems with it now.

Cheers,
Pete.
