When multiple internet explorer tabbed windows that were opened, are closed by hitting 'X' on right corner of tabbed window. We see that the immediate window behind that increases its size, and there is a probability to close that window too by user without the need for it.

For example, open three tabbed windows in same IE browser window.  Lets say you open in first tabbed window that is right besides the browser URL bar. Next open in same browser window. Skype will be second tabbed web page over Bing web page. Now open third tabbed web page. This will be over Skype webpage.

Now close the third opened webpage tabbed window. When you close it, you will see that Skype window that was opened second, size is increased and by mistake we may close that too though we don't want to. Try similar way with first opened webpage of by closing webpage.

I appreciate the IE design procedure.
I guess you missed a point in my Bug-Defect Question. Sizing of IE tabs does not matter. But on closing outermost IE tab, it should not close the tab next to it. This is surely not in the design.
Anyways, thanks a lot for paying attention to my feedback.

Thank you for your feedback. At this time we do not plan on changing the design of tab resizing, which provides a quick way for users to close multiple tabs successively.

Your feedback is helping us see the needs of our users so we can improve the quality of Internet Explorer. We continue to welcome more feedback and look forward to hearing from you again soon.

Best regards,
The Internet Explorer Team
