Steps to reproduce


Repro Steps:

Open any webpage with a lot of javascript transitions

right click on hyperlink > click open in new tab
do this on multiple links straight after, around three, all pages should be loading at the same time.
switch to one of the tabs that are loading
Active window/tab will lock up or will show long running javascript message at the bottom and freeze the entire window

My computer specs
Intel i5, 16GB RAM, 500GB SATA, Windows 7 SP1

Expected Results:

When opening multiple links in tabs, the current active window should not lock up. On chrome I can open multiple tabs without any of the tabs locking up when I switch between them. It’s because of things like this it slows down my web browsing, so I only IE for general web browsing and only use it at work.

Actual Results:
