I fixed this problem by uninstalling the Ask Toolbar. Go to Windows Control Panel and uninstall program.

I found the Ask.com program listed as a Foxit toolbar. I deleted it and my tabbing function came back immediately. In the Windows uninstaller, look for Ask.com in the publisher column rather than in the program name column.
