    Before anyone states the obvious that Internet Explorer is shite etc, this is not my computer. It's my gf's laptop.

    I've tried to convince her to use an alternative browser but she doesn't like change too much, she's had the laptop for a year and started off using IE from the beginning.

    Anyway the problem is when using IE in metro mode. Quite often she will switch from tab to tab and they will become messed up like in the picture below.

    Closing and reopening sometimes brings the tabs back but the address bar is usually missing then. I've tried searching but there doesn't seem to be a definitive solution to the problem.

    Anyone else had this problem? Any suggestions for a solution other than binning IE/windows 8/my gf:D etc???
