Start
All Programs
Startup

Right click on it and choose "Open".
You can then create a shortcut to your App (don't move the app itself) into that folder.

If you open a link to a website when the browser is open it will open it in a new tab. However if the browser isn't open yet, it creates a new window. Because your computer is trying to open the two links at the same time, the browser doesn't have time to open in between and so you get two windows.

If you're using firefox, you could set the two tabs you're interested in as your home page (yes, firefox lets you have multiple home pages) and have the links simply start firefox. The downside of that would be that every time you open the browser you get those sites opening, which may not be desirable.

A second option would be to create a short script (bat, vbs, etc) which opens the first site, waits for a few seconds to let the browser open, and then opens the remaining sites. Obviously the script would then be put in the startup folder.

It should be a relatively simple task; I'll see if I can make one for you.

The following batch script might do it for you. It isn't actually a very good solution, so I'll think about how to make it with another language if you want to use that technique.

Code:
@echo off
start www.techguy.org
ping 0.0.0.0 > nul
start www.google.com
Obviously replace techguy and google with the sites you want.

It doesn't matter so long as the extension is .bat
For example: webopen.bat

I'm not quite sure why that would be happening, but I suppose it could be a difference in the browser. I tested it with my default browser, Firefox 4.0. Which browser are you using? In addition, have you made any modifications to your browser (such as addons) which might make it behave differently from normal?

I'm looking into using javascript to do it (which would be better as it operates inside the browser) instead of Batch, but I'm still not very good with that language and so my design isn't coming together very quickly.
