Error Code while attempting to switch between tabs for the Workspace

I opened the workspace by using the "Launch Workspace" button on the right side. It opened the workspace in its own window. To save space and time I copied the URL for the workspace and pasted it into a new tab on my existing open browser window. All appeared to be working fine until I got the following message:

Error opening file An error occurred when trying to open the file ./index.html. (error SecurityError)

Has anyone else attempted to use the workspace in the same way? Does anyone know what caused the error?

Additionally, the feature of highlighting the CSS element property value to preview the 'color blue' as indicated in the video is not working using the workspace in the separate tab of the same browser. I am beginning to think that my attempt to use the workspace in the same browser as the video and coursework is not the desired or architected fashion. Can someone confirm for me the recreation of these activities and outcomes? I can proceed using two windows but would prefer to keep my space tighter and clean by using one browser window. I will understand limitations should this be the case. Thanks.
