How can I prevent IE8 to share session cookies?
It seems that IE8 is sharing session cookies across instances. This is a major problem for us. How can we solve this ?

Since I installed IE8, when I open several instances of IE, the session parameters are shared across all instances.  This was not the case with IE7 and no other browse is acting like that. This could casue server security issues ! Is there somewhere a setting to prevent this to happen.

Hello snxde0,

Sharing cookies is by design, said Eric Lawrence, Microsoft Security Program Manager.  See the last two comments in this thread
http://www.vistaheads.com/forums/microsoft-public-internetexplorer-general/346079-ie-8-release-version-sharing-session-cookies-across-browsers.html

Now in IE8, new sessions are created explicitly, by clicking File >
New Session, or by starting iexplore.exe with the -nomerge command
line parameter.

Hope this helps!
