The provided information is not sufficient to determine what might cause the described behavior. For that matter, I would like to ask to open a support ticket, with a runnable sample attached, so we could inspect the problem locally. In addition, could you provide us a screenshot of the RadTabStrip demonstrating the problematic behavior?
