I have a WordPress website in my localhost and I have logged into my website and it works fine but if I open the wp-login.php page in a new tab then it shows me the login page instead of redirecting me to wp-admin as I already logged in.

I have checked this issue in multiple setups and it happens with all WordPress setup I have checked.

I have recorded a video and link of it is =>

Steps I follow:

1) First I have opened my WordPress site and logged into as usual.
2) I have open localhost/mysite/wp-login.php page then it shows me the login page instead of redirecting me to the wp-admin page as I have already logged in to that website.

Hello @rnitinb,
Welcome to WordPress Trac! Thanks for the ticket.

But I can check you are using Mozilla Firefox in a private window, maybe you have block cookie. Can you check without a private window?

Thanks for the quick reply.

I have tested all websites that I have in WordPress in the Normal Window and it works the same as in the video.

I have made a video in the Private window because I want to show the only issue for you. There is no cookie block or no any other blocker plugin installed in my Firefox.

However, I have made a another video with Normal Window. Please see =>
