Hello fearofbirds,



Welcome to the Apple Support Communities, and it appears there is some unresponsiveness when opening a link in a new tab. We'll be more than happy to help make sure it is working normally.



If you haven't already, restart your Mac from the Apple () menu then Restart.



To narrow it down, also be sure to open Safari in safe mode and try opening a link in a new tab from there: How to use safe mode on your Mac



Take care!
