Internet Explorer 10 Elongated Tabs

This article was posted more than 1 year ago. Please keep in mind that the information on this page may be outdated, insecure, or just plain wrong today.

I’ve noticed since using IE10 that when closing a tab the remaining tab will be elongated as if it is making up for the tab that has closed.  I usually just bring focus back to the tab that is elongated and it will shrink/auto-size properly.  Just thought this was weird and I’ll research it a bit to see if this is a known issue.

  1. I’ve been noticing the same thing. It’s not a terrible issue but can be a distraction at times. I’ve even noticed where the remaining tab will remain elongated if my mouse stays hovered over it.

    • Yeah, still experience this even with IE10 released officially to Windows 7. I had also noticed it on my Windows 8 systems as well. Just a strange feature I suppose. I never did find conclusive information on this and Googling/Binging this topic is frustrating to say the least.
