Link to specific tab not working, jQuery 2.2.0

We’ve found that the “standard” Forum custom code workaround for linking to a specific tab from a URL no longer works when using the legacy jQuery 2.2.0:

So far as I can see, the final line in the forum custom code is called but has no effect:
$(’.’ + tabName).triggerHandler(‘click’)

Switch back to the current jQuery and all is well, but this may cause problems for some who are unable to make that change.
