Can Internet Explorer 9 load multiple browsers into current web session?

By edean65 ·
I have a very important website to access, and Internet Explorer 9 makes it very hard to get this done. I keep getting this message: "You already have a web browser accessing the current web session. Multiple browsers are not allowed to share the same web session. To launch a new web session, please open a new web browser by accessing your command prompt or your desktop." I keep thinking this issue is related to tabbed browsing, and once about three weeks ago this website I needed did come up after I tweaked some internet settings in IE 9, mostly those involving tabbed browsing. I'm lost today, as those settings were changed and nothing I've done fixes this. What happens is that I access a website (the typical browser screen contains the page-- the browser screen has the bing toolbar.access to tools, favorites etc. via toolbar.) Upon clicking a link, another page comes up in the same way. Upon clicking a second link, a login page comes up that has no bing bars, toolbars etc of any kind. It's just a webpage in a window and that's it. When I try to log in, I get the message above and have to bug out of the process and quit. Anyone have any ideas how to fix this?

Most commonly that's seen with web apps like Siebel CRM. What web app are you using?

I'm not familiar with what a "web app" is, I guess. I'm a client side developer for the most part, and most of that has been in console and desktop applications. So I'm not sure which one I'm using. Would it be something supplied by the creator of the website I'm trying to access? Who should I contact about this?

Many applications that use a web interface

are web applications.

Thus if this is a web site used for a specific purpose, like ADP Payroll, for example, it's really a 'web application' versus just a web site. Siebel CRM, for example, is a web-based application that very specifically gives the error message you are seeing.

Normally web sites don't put any demands on the browser...it either works or it does not. But web applications often put special demands on the browser for security or performance reasons.

Is this website a public website or something internal to a corporate or education network? If it's public, many folks here would be more than willing to test it out.

Thanks for the offer and clarification. I don't feel comfortable revealing the purpose of the website or whether it's private or public right now, but I can tell you that it specifies Windows Internet Explorer 8 as a requirement. The problem started happening when I upgraded to Windows Explorer 9. Is there any way to roll back my browser to Internet Explorer 8? I think I should try that.
