customer portal session issue


We have customer portal, where user sign up and uses the portal. in some case, when the user closes the window and try to access customer portal in the same browser, it is loading only the VF template but not the page. The session of the user is not timed out and it behaves this way, if the user session timeout(it is 30 minutes), then the user is able to login successfull. else after login it loads only the template.

i tried adding a javascript and do the login and a page reference to go back to the last left page but it is not happening.

did anyone faced this issue?

What is your return url?

What seems to be happening is that after login it points it to the right page but you need to make the right page as the home page.

Hope this makes sense.
There is no return URL. but the login method calls the same method and it appends the same page reference. I mean, when the session is not active the same button click and method is called and it is logging in and launching the page but when the session is active and when the user do the same action it loads only template(no return URL also)

What is your home page set as? It seems as though you have you customers going to a certain page after login but a different page set as home?

What link do your customers use? Where is this stored? (website, Customer computer, etc.)

Could you post your vf code?

Could you give me a login code and i may be able to better help you?

Home page is set to Login page.

the link is stored in a website. when they click on third party website, it calls our site webpage.
