Panel tab clicking issues
I have been having issues when I click between two tabs that I group together in the same panel it will essentially freeze and only show me one of the panels if I am clicking on another. So for example I have the layer and link tab in one panel. I am currently on the layers panel and when I click on the links tab to switch to that panel it continues to show me the layers panel when I am looking to see the links panel if that makes sense? The only way of fixing this is restarting the program and it gets really annoying when I have to constantly do that in a day.
Yeah it is so annoying I constantly have multiple tabs open and sometimes it screws up my overriding :(

Same issue here on my end, both Illustrator and Photoshop.. Has been an issue now for a year or more for me. Talked to reps in the forums, as did many others, they said it should be addressed 2 updates ago. Still an issue unfortunately.
One thing that seems to be related to this issue for me is how many tabs you have grouped together. When grouping Layers/Artboards/Appearance/Graphic Styles I am unable to get the Layers/Artboards tabs to properly load without manually using the Window menu to select which one I want to view. When I remove Graphic Styles or Appearance from the group it appears to function properly again.
When the issue occurs, which has only been more recently for me, I can see the area around the name in each tab can be selected as well to avoid this non-responsiveness. It is almost like the bounding box around this text cannot be selected but the tab/button can be, as you can see it highlight when hovering over the tab.
I have the same issue, it also keeps happening on the tabs bteween files - when clicking on a different tab it shows the new as 'selected' but the content doesn't change. Can also only be fixed with a restart.
I have the same problem with Illustrator and Photoshop. Dragging the window size from the corner, makes it show the right tab again. :D It's ridiculous and frustrating. With these professional programs the work flow should be perfect. With CC it has been not.
