    Hello,

    We would like to allow multiple home pages while still allowing users to add
    additional home pages. When we apply "Disable changing home page" group
    policy, the additional home page tabs disappear when the policy is applied.
    We also tried disabling the "Disable Changing secondary home page settings",
    yet users extra home pages still disappear on reboot as long as the "Disable
    changing home page setting is enabled.

    Anyone else having this problem?

    If the user wants multiple pages loaded at once, and rather than have it
    done everytime they load IE (because they may not want all those pages
    loaded everytime), have them pick a home page or use about:blank or
    about:tabs and then use a Favorites *group* to open the multiple pages (save
    them using Favorites -> Add Current Tabs to Favorites) WHEN they want rather
    than all the time. Tab groups make it quite handy to decide when you want
    to load a whole bunch of them at once but you're not stuck with that choice
    and having to wait for the tabs to load everytime you want to use IE.
