Folder tabs - closing when switching style

Say I have two folder tabs open and change from 'Details view' (Explorer) to Images (under style tabs).
Then one folder tab at the bottom is closing, i.e. I have 1 left at the bottom.

Q: Is there a way to prevent that from happening?

Thanks.

Edit the styles in Preferences and you can turn on and off which aspects of the lister they modify.

Many thanks! Turning off "Close existing folder tabs" seems to do the trick.
Really helpful for me: so far each time I had to re-open a folder again, set it to image view...
