Session retained across browser, IE and Firefox
Posted on 2009-04-14
I am testing my web application from the web server (not locally) on IE7 and Firefox.
I notice that my session variables are retained from one browser to another.
If I set a session ItemId in IE7 and go to the Firefox and refresh the page, it pulls up the itemID I last pulled up in IE7 rather than the one I last pulled up in Firefox and visa versa.
Is that normal? Seems to me that could cause problems. I think I'm saving to the page I'm on, but if I view an ID in IE7, and then go to save a change in Firefox, it will save under the IE7 session itemID rather than the one I was last on in Firefox. Not that my users will be using two browsers at the same time, but still. It just doesn't seem right.
What is going on?
