Both Internet Explorer and Mozilla browsers when you have multiple windows
there is only one application instance running, this is done to save memory
and make the program run faster.

Probably (i'm not sure) Mozilla behaves diffent than Internet Explorer in
this situation. My advice is that you contact the mozilla mailing list and
they will give the answer you are looking for.

Subject: [PHP-DB] Unexpected Session Behavior on Mozilla

> Hello PHP-DB listers,
> I've a  PHP, MySQL Web Page script that branches according to browser
> (e.g., MSIE, or Mozilla ) and which uses a small number of session
> variables. I've noticed that when connecting through Explorer, for each
> browser / page instance opened on the same machine, there is a new session

> from the previously opened page. This is confusing to me, to say the
> least. Anybody have any thoughts as to why this is occurring?
> MySQL 4.0.16
> PHP 4.3.4
> Apache 2.0.48
> Win2K IE 5.50x
> RH9 Mozilla 1.2.1
