As per my understanding we don't have support for opening window in a new Tab.And also it is always not a good idea to open in new Tab as the dialog size could be different. Similar fix is done for JavaFX(https://git.openjdk.java.net/jfx/pull/440) and for other application(like SPSS) it is advised to set System Preference  -> General -> Prefer tabs  to  never.
