Blank webpage is displayed when you open a link in a new tab in Internet Explorer 11 - Microsoft Support [MS]

Warning: The retired, out-of-support Internet Explorer 11 (IE11) desktop application will be permanently disabled on certain versions of Windows 10 as part of the February 2023 Windows security update ("B") release scheduled for February 14, 2023. We highly recommend setting up IE mode in Microsoft Edge and disabling IE11 prior to this date to ensure your organization doesn't experience business disruption.

Assume that you have Internet Explorer 11 installed on a computer. You open several links from a webpage in new tabs. In this situation, the webpage on the new tab is displayed as blank. However, the thumbnail on the shortcut bar displays the content of the new webpage correctly. 


  • The expected behavior is that the webpage is displayed correctly in the new tab.

  • This issue does not occur if you open a link in a new window.


This issue occurs because the new tab is opened and navigated at almost the same time.
