Open from pinned Tab doesn't recognize note is already open

Steps to reproduce

Have a pinned note with at least one linked existing note in it. Click the link in the pinned note, and it will open a new tab with the linked note. Click it again and it will open another new tab with the same linked note.

Expected result

Tab containing clicked note should get focus if it’s already open. I believe this was the previous behavior.

Actual result

Clicking links in a pinned note will open as many copies of the same note as your little heart desires…just keep clicking that link.

Additional information

Previous opening links from pinned tab wasn’t broken and was more inline with the default pattern for most browsers/web pages, and desktop applications. Common pattern for open in new tab is to CTRL-Click for front end or target=blank-type code underneath. Would love that to come back.
