Edge limit of 5 vertical tabs open at a time

Brass Contributor

Seems to be a limit of about 5 open tabs if you open a new one by clicking on a bookmark: an already open tab will close.

but if you click on the + tab button, I can then click on an existing bookmark and no prior tabs will close.

On this win 11 machine, it's not a memory resource issue.

is there a way to increase the default number of allowed open tabs?

Is there any way for you to record a video of what you're seeing? This doesn't sound like intentional behavior, so it would really help to see exactly what's going on.

but meanwhile, the workaround for me is to first click on the + sign on the vertical tab, then hit a shortcut or type in a url. That doesn't hit any practical limits.
