Chat window always defaults to Officer upon zoning/logging in

I have two chat windows. Each has several tabs. All tabs on the left window default to wherever I had them last. On the right, the only tab with multiple channels is my cabal window which also has officer chat. This tab ALWAYS defaults to Officer anytime I change zones (which is often) so that if I simply press Enter and then type it goes to Officer. Since the two channels are nearly identical in color (seriously, whose idea was that?) it can easily go unnoticed. I must always type /cabal which is getting tiresome. I tried in Discord to find a solution, but nobody could offer one.

I’ve deleted the tab and recreated it, but it did not help. It didn’t matter which order the two channels were joined. Plus a dozen other things that do not work.
