New UI - allow multiple IE sessions

The new UI doesn't allow multiple IE 11 sessions to be used simultaneously. When I try having 2 separate browser sessions open (using the File > New session option) I always get a "The session has expired. Please log in again." error when I try going back to the original session after doing an edit in the second session. This will be frustrating for our users who are used to being able to use multiple sessions simultaneously.

This error is even worse because it only appears when a user tries to save changes in the original session. This means users could spend quite a bit of time editing data in the original session and then only when they click save will they get the session expired error. This could lead to users losing a significant amount of data and having to rekey it all in which they'll get frustrated with.

    Thank you again for submitting this Idea!

    Upon looking into this, Google Chrome ("incognito" mode) works for this use case.

    Marking as "Capability Already Exists".
