Have you tried resetting your Tabbed Browsing Settings?
Go to Tools --> Internet Options --> Under the General Tab see Tabs ans click on Settings --> Now, click Restore Defaults --> Click OK then Apply
Does that solve the problem?

I noticed a few weeks ago that if I get a link sent to me in an email and click on it, IE doesn't open up the page that fills the monitor. IE will open but it stays down on the task bar and just flashes until I click on it. I thought maybe some setting has gotten changed, but I can't figure out what it may be. I appreciate any suggestions you may have.
