You can't.  This is a client-side problem.  As your first link says:
"Use a key in the querystring, tied to a cookie or a form, if session
state across windows is a necessity."

Alternatively... why does help display require the user to be logged in?
Can you bypass this by putting the help files somewhere that doesn't
require login?  Intuitively, they don't seem like data that requires
authentication to view...
