Switch to a paper's tab if it's already open (for "View PDF")

If I click “View PDF” for a paper that I already have open in another tab (because I already clicked View PDF), just switch to the tab that has it open instead of opening the paper again in a new tab.

I had a /facepalm moment today when clicking through papers I thought I should read, and after clicking to a paper saying to myself “Wow, this looks almost identical to their other paper I read earlier [which was still open in another tab] … even some of the plots look the same!” Yeah, that’s because it was the same paper I read earlier, about 6 tabs back. Oops.

Seems like I should just be directed to the tab that already has the paper open.
