There is no network concept behind this. What you're describing is purely a function of how your browser and the particular website works. Namely, it boils down to cookies and such that the browser uses after you authenticate. If you're authenticating to the same website under two different accounts, chances are the website is going to be using the same cookie for both instances. This is why when you do the same exercise on different browsers, it works as each browser is working off a unique cookie and are not stepping on each other.
