In the User Application, if you log in as User A using a Mozilla-family browser (Firefox, Netscape, or Mozilla), then open another browser instance (of the same kind of browser) and log in as User B, you might see information for User B when going back to the first browser instance. This is because browser instances are sharing (and overwriting) the same cookie.


  This behavior is specific to Mozilla-family browsers; it does not occur with Internet Explorer
