    IE8 -> options -> advanced -> reset zoom level for new windows and tabs only
    resets the zoom level for any tabs opened after the first one. the first tab
    is always not reset even when this option is checked. pls fix.

    Since the first tab is not a new tab, just how would this option apply?
    Think of the "resetting" of the zoom level to be the configured default
    value. Defaults are what you initially use. That first tab remains open
    during your entire IE8 session. When you first load IE8 and that first tab
    loads, it will use the default zoom level, too, but obviously it remains
    open during the entire time you are using IE8 so there is no "new" setting
    to apply to it.

    Just when did you expect the first tab, the one that gets loaded when you
    load IE8, to get reset? When would that first tab become a new tab?
