IE windows started with Browser Chooser do not open as new tabs in existing IE windows

description

I have Browser Chooser set to handle my HTTP and HTTPS protocols. I use scripts to call as well as hard-type URLs from the command line (Run prompt mostly). When Browser Chooser is set as my default handler, all URLs I open get created in new IE windows vs. adding them as new tabs to existing IE windows.

Is there a fix or planned remediation for this behavior?

(Very) old issue - see this discussion thread:

https://browserchooser.codeplex.com/discussions/68706

Has not been fixed so far, b/c it seems to be IEs behavior - all other browser, as Jan mentioned, work perfectly fine.

Ivandr had some ideas on how to possibly work around for it, but thus far nothing has worked for us.
