Why Does Current Tab Close When I Tap on New Tab?

On my sony z3  after I click google and go to my outlook email I can't then open a 2nd window without the outlook window closing, or at least not be visable when i look for by tapping the square icon on the screen's bottom right.  I thought I used to be able to do this by tapping the 3 vertical dots on the upper right and a New Tab appears. But when I tap on it the Outlook window closes.

That is, after I open my online bank account I then need to leave it open and go to my outlook account to retrieve the pass code. But then my bank window closes, or vice versa.
So how do I configure the phone to keep those windows open simultaneously?
OR will both windows remain open if i instead hit the google or chrome icon and go to my online bank that way, instead of tapping on those vertical dots at the upper right?

Bingo! Found a solution: There's a tiny square box in the upper right corner between the web address bar and those 3 vertical dots. It shows the number of windows you have open.
