Re: Minimized web pages
I experience bjoshua's same situation. I'm more than a casual user and I,
too, am not a fan of tabbed browsing. It's a workstyle thing.

As a developer, I would address a bug like this in my product. This behavior
is annoying. Never posted to MS Forums before, but had to with this one.
