I sign into my USPTO.gov account, then click the Patent Drop Down and click on Patent Center. Once there, I do not have "Existing Submissions" available and when I look in the upper right, my name is not there. It still says Sign In. It seems that when you open patent center in a new tab, the sign in does not transfer.
Also the same when I open the link from the emailed receipt -- I can already be logged in and then click the link it opens patent center, but not logged in.
Is there a fix to make the sign in stick when opening new tabs?
