    A vexing browser tab issue that I've not seen explained anywhere:  I set the home page to blank (because I don't want IE to hang on opening, trying to connect to a web page that is temporarily unavailable).  Then, any time I attempt to open a new tab (not as a result of clicking a link, just opening a blank tab), IE delays and the tab indicates "Connecting".  Connecting to about:blank is superfluous – it doesn't need to connect to anything.  This behavior does not occur in Firefox – in that browser, a tab just opens right away upon user request.  How can IE be tweaked to not attempt to "connect" to a blank page?  It should just open the tab immediately.  I cannot imagine why Microsoft has not fixed this yet.
