Portlet disappears from the page on a duplicate IE session

Hi,

We have a portlet added to a page and it works fine when user logs in using IE. But, when the same user open another IE window and go into the portal, user see the homepage but doesn't see the portlet. Portlet just disappears and its not just 1 portlet... this behaviour applies to all portlets on that page when we open a duplicate browser window.
Another test I did was, I opened IE and Firefox simultaneously, login to the portal. Portlets are visible in both browsers and works as expected.

Looks like some session sharing issue when we open 2 similar browser sessions at the same time. Portlet disappearing behaviour is seen in both IE & Firefox. Can anyone please help or provide pointers on this?

Thanks....

I can't duplicate the problem.
Are you using Liferay 6.1.1 GA2? Are portlet standard liferay portlets or did you develop them yourself?

We are using 6.1 GA1. Its MVC Portlet deployed as seperate project within. Basically a new war file with standard liferay implementation.
I am able to reproduce it everytime. Here is my test case again:

1. Open portal in IE, goto url http://xyz.com (sample url) login with a userid/password
2. Homepage is laoded with 3 portlets
3. Keeping the original window open, Open another IE window and go to the same URL http://xyz.com (sample url)
4. User is shown homepage directly without entering id/password
5. User Homepage is blank in the second browser, doesn't see any portlet.

Let me know if you need any other detail.

Thanks..

Wrong. Keeping the browser opened causes the session to keep in browser, so anytime you open another window will keep session as well.

To test that, open another browser (Firefox, etc).

There was a problem with GA1. Try upgrading to GA2.

This is intentional. I want to fill in data in one screen by referring from the other
