SYMPTOMS

In Internet Explorer 8, the user credentials that are sent through the XMLHttpRequest object are not shared to other tab processes in the same Internet Explorer window.

Consider the following scenario:
  • You use Internet Explorer 8 to access a Web page.
  • You send an authenticated XMLHttpRequest object to authenticate the Internet Explorer session.
In this scenario, when you open a new tab in the same Internet Explorer window, and open the same Web page, you are prompted again for the user credentials.
