IE8 Drops SSL Sessions

    Why is IE8 dropping SSL sessions?

    I am unable to navigate to any SSL page that verifies the session. The session gets dropped and the browser thinks I don't have a valid session.

    This happens on 3 different machines, which is a complete pain, because I can't use IE8 to login to any of my credit card or banking sites to pay my bills, etc.

    I've gotten that too.  I found it more nearly works if you eable IE7-compatibility mode. That is to say, about half the time you'll get it to retain your session through a click.  Allow me to suggest you shift-click the links so you can keep your session open in one window.

    They're going to address this in the RTM right, I mean it isn't considered a feature, is it?

    How many irritated people will there be when they discover they can't use their online banking or bill pay sites.
