Netscape must be your default browser. That is what NoteTab
defaults to when no browser is configured in Options | Internet |
Main Browser. Shift F8 only works when you have a second browser

Look in NoteTab's ini file and see if you have "NewBrowserWindow"
set to a one. I have NetScape 4.7 in my Main Browser and Opera
in my Other Browser. Neither opens an extra instance.

"Main Browser: When left blank, NoteTab can detect if the default
browser (Internet Explorer, Netscape, or Opera) is already open
and use that instance. You can specify another browser if you do
not want to launch the default one."
