How to launch two same EBS forms in the same time?

In our team, one PC can open two same EBS forms with the same user in the same time, but others can not.
It seems that it has something with browser setting, by the way, we use IE.
How can we set other PCs in order to open two forms?

    Please mention your EBS/Jinitator/JRe version.

    Also your IE version?

    Thanks for your information.
    I found what I need in the Recommended Browsers for Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.
    ====
    By default the ‘Session Merging’ feature within IE8 prevents this functionality from working correctly.
    This IE8 functionality causes the same session id to be used when accessing the same Oracle E-Business Suite environment despite opening a new browser window to launch a second session.
    ...
    Open a new explorer window using its own session cookie by selecting 'File -> New Session' from an existing browser window.
    Run from the command line adding the -nomerge parameter i.e. Start -> Run -> iexplore -nomerge
    Create a new IE8 icon adding the -nomerge parameter i.e.
    Start -> Program Files
    Right click on the Internet Explorer icon and select Properties
    Add -nomerge to the end of the link in the Target field i.e.
    "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" -nomerge
    Click the OK button to close the window
    ====
    Our IE version is 8,and I can open a new window in a new session by the method below.
    But still a question.
    The PC which can launch two forms has nothing defferent from the other ones ,and open the form in an usual way,which really confused me...

    Can you please compare IE setting for systems where you are able to work and where not?
