Some websites still know that you are the same user despite clearing the history and changing the connection externally (with Vidalia). The only solution is to get a "New Identity", which loses all your tabs and downloads.

"New Identity" is the only secure way to do this. But there are suggestions to make it more user friendly, e.g. don't close all tabs if the user explicitly wants to do so. This is tracked in #9906 and #10400. Marking this as a duplicate of #9906.
