Minor UI improvement
if I leave my pfsense webUI open at a page for awhile, then click on something, say RRD Graphs, it will prompt for a new login because the old one times out. When I log in, it always goes to the home page, and not to the page I was heading for.
Yes, that is a minor pain.
If you open a request on redmine.pfsense.org then it won't get lost in forum noise.
Not sure if it counts as a bug or feature?
The lack of redirection is a security measure.
If you must keep a browser open like that, either increase the session timeout (System > User Manager, Settings tab) or configure your browser (or an add-on) to refresh the page periodically to keep the session active. But those also lessen security, of course.
