Okay, here it is. IE 8 (also IE 7) has no option to Open a New Tab in the flyout menu when clicking on a Favorite. Supposedly, IE7 Pro add-on allows it, but I have never gotten it to work in IE 7 (or IE 8). Anybody have registry hack to implement this? Firefox does it and, yes, the tabs can get numerous, but having to click the New Tab button (or CTL-T) is an unnecessary additional step. Hitting the link just "overwrites" whatever tab you're on in IE.
