Where are you double clicking?

You need to do that on empty space on the tab bar. You should also have a new tab plus (+) button on the tab bar to open a new tab.

You can find the New Tab button showing as a '+' on the Tab bar.
If you can't find the New Tab button then click the "Restore Default Set" button in the Customize window.
