hi, how does IE and firefox differ wrt to seeion managing. When a new window is opened in IE it is in the same session. However for firefox doesn't it start the new window in another session??if so how do i obtain values. Also if the new window is a popup does the parent window get notification automatically abt the child window closing
You are correct that IE considers all open windows to be part of the same session. In Firefox/Mozilla/Netscape, it depends on how the window is opened. If it is opened as a link or pop-up (or I suspect a tab) from an existing window, the session is shared. If you actually launch the browser again, a new session is created.
