openPrimaryTab not getting focus on to already open tab in Service console

If the record was already opened manually from other view (with manual click), and then click on the link, we will not get focus on to that tab
if we open the record through the link and when go click on the same link we will getting the focus.

function openPage(url,name){
        sforce.console.openPrimaryTab(undefined,url, true, name);
    } else {,'_parent'); 

1. Click on VF link ( List of record )
2. back to detail page of link
3. Click link of same record again 
4. Check debug log and you will find error  'openPrimaryTab: Opening a duplicate tab is not allowed.'

Thanks in Advance
