browser refresh reloads the login page

I am having Login authentication in my application , once the login succeeds we re-set the contents of the Window.

On Chrome when i do a refresh (click on the browser refresh button ) after login , the application goes back to the login page.

But on Firefox on refresh , it just refreshes the window contents and does not go back to login.

Obviously we don't want the user to re-login on refresh.

Has anyone else encountered this issue on chrome & knows how to address this ?

Any help is appreciated.


Solution In my case set the following in the context.xml

<Context sessionCookiePathUsesTrailingSlash='false'>

Same here with Vaadin 6.8.0:

Chrome 20: restart
Opera 11.62: restart
Safari 5.1.7: restart
IE 9: restart
FF 13: ok

I tested it with the 2 apps I made so far with Vaadin: only one has this behaviour! I have to find out what the differences are. Maybe Henri has an idea where I should take a deeper look?
