Need Help Why do all web pages close after clicking X ?

by curt07 - 11/17/08 2:36 PM

Hello, I have windows vista home preimium. When I used to have more than one page open at a time down on the systen tray I could close the web page I have open by clicking the X and just that one page would close.!! And the other pages would stay open so I could go from there.
NOW WHEN I CLICK THE X on 1 web page all of the web pages I have open close and the computer goes back to the desktop. I then have to re-sign back in and start from there to go back to where I was befor.

I don't know what to do to fix this problem? I mean everything shuts down, even my 2 IM windows that I keep open so I can see when someone comes online to IM. I have to sign back in on everything. ITS DRIVING ME NUTS why is my computer doing this now and it never did this befor?
Tell me what to do one step at a time because I'm abit old shcool. LOL I hope some people know what to do?? Thanks alot.
