If possible can you please mail me your document so that we can look into the tabs issue that you are facing?
Also as a workaround you can try the following:
Navigate to Preference->Advance Type -> Type Contextual Controls and disable the first preference “show for Character Alternates, Fractions, Ordinals and Ligatures”
Let me know if this helps
Thanks and regards,

I have followed your suggestion and that workaround has resolved the issue.
I have emailed you the file so we can get a full resolution to this issue.
I tried this workaround, and it worked once, then reverted to the locked Type tool. This is extremely frustrating. Sometimes, I can restart the program, or restart the program to use the other tools, but the tools lock up once I select the type tool
