  • Well, after much ado it seems my problem has resolved itself. My system received 18 updates from Microsoft today, one of them was an IE 11 rollup. I installed the updates and after reboot my problem has gone away. I have been testing it for about ten minutes and it works every time now.

    Thank You to everyone for your help. Have a great day.

  • Hi,

    We may first take a look at the following blog:

    The cool feature in IE10 that felt like a bug until I figured out it was a feature

    Please move your mouse off of the tab strip,  tabs then will become to their default sizes.

    If any further questions, please feel free to ask here.

    Best regards

  • All -

    My Operating System is Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit with Service Pack 1 and all updates installed. My browser is Internet Explorer version 11.0.9600.17280.

    Michael Shao -

    That was the case when I was using IE 10. In this version the tabs stretch when I close a tab. But after moving the mouse they stay stretched instead of shrinking back down to their default size.

    Thank You in advance everyone!

  • My Operating System is Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit with Service Pack 1 and all updates installed. My browser is Internet Explorer version 11.0.9600.17280.

    Please answer each of the following [admittedly tedious] diagnostic questions in a correspondingly-numbered list in your very next reply, preferably without quoting my post:

    1a. When (approx. date) did you purchase the computer?

    1b. Did Win7 64-bit come preinstalled on the computer when you bought it, did you do a clean install of Win7, or did you upgrade the computer to Win7?

    2. What is the full name of your installed anti-virus application or security suite and when (approx. date) does your current subscription expire? What anti-spyware applications (other than Defender) are installed? What third-party firewall (if any)?

    3. Has a(nother) Norton application or a McAfee application EVER been installed on the computer since you bought it?

    4. Did a Norton free-trial or a McAfee free-trial [PICK ONE] come preinstalled on the computer when you bought it? (Doesn't matter if you never used or Activated it.)

    5. Is KB2977629, KB2972211 & KB2973112; KB2976897, KB2993651, KB2918614, KB2978668, KB2937610 and/or KB2943357 listed in Installed Updates (not Update History)? [1]

    6. Assuming Java is installed => Is Java Version 7 Update 65 (or higher) installed? TEST HERE USING INTERNET EXPLORER ONLY! => http://java.com/en/download/uninstallapplet.jsp [2]

    7. Is Adobe Flash Player v15.0.0.167 (or higher) installed? TEST HERE USING INTERNET EXPLORER ONLY! => http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/

    8a. When (exact date) was Internet Explorer 11 installed according to Installed Updates?

    8b. What Update Version & KB number are displayed in the second line of text in IE11's Help | About [Alt+H+A] tab; e.g., Update Version: XX.0.54 (KB1231231) ?

    8c. Is Firefox, Chrome or any other alternate browser installed?

    9. Are you in the habit of using "Registry cleaners" (e.g., Registry Mechanic; System Mechanic; RegCure; RegClean Pro; Advanced SystemCare; Registry Booster; McAfee QuickClean; Glary Utilities; AVG PC TuneUp; Norton Registry Cleaner; PCTools Optimiser; SpeedUpMyPC; PC Doctor; TuneUp Utilities; WinMaximizer; WinSweeper; Comodo System Cleaner; Advanced System Optimizer; CCleaner's Registry Cleaner component)?

    ==============================================
    [1] Start | Control Panel | Programs and Features | View installed updates (in left-hand menu)
    [2] No need to install Java if it's not already installed!
