Unable to create textures in alternate scene

The texture properties tab is unavailable for me after adding additional scenes. In the compositor nodes, I can add a texture node, but I have no way to create procedural textures for it, unless I switch back to the original scene where the Texture Properties tab is available. Why is this happening and how do we fix it?

This sounds like my issue:

And did you tried the mentioned trick with switching into texture paint… ?
