If you want to visit a file in another tab, you should visit it with
"C-x t f" (or "C-x 6 f"), not with "C-x C-f".  This is similar to
visiting a file in another frame with "C-x 5 f": unless you do that,
"C-x C-f" visits the file in the current frame and current window.

Another possibility is to turn on global-tab-line-mode.  Then each
_window_ will have tabs, and every time you visit a file in that
window, another tab appears for that window.

This is in NEWS, btw.

The empty boxes seem to indicate that Emacs is unable to load the
icons for closing and opening tabs, they should be displayed instead
of the empty boxes.  If you are running an installed Emacs, perhaps
"make install" have a bug whereby it doesn't install the tab-related
