Yesterday I updated my Surface RT to Windows 8.1 from the Store app.
After that, I did some search using Internet Explorer App. And, I've tap and hold over the results links (so I can open the result in another tab), but, when I went to the new tab, the page seems 'frozen', I cannot scroll down at all.
This behavior is happening randomly (some tabs are 'freeze' while others are working just fine), and I tried Windows 8.1 Preview before in other PC, and saw this bug too. So, the final version of Windows 8.1 doesn't seems to 'fix' this bug still.

My Surface RT did not receive any updates to fix this problem. The IE 11 tabs continue to freeze. Please launch a fix soon.
