Information in this document applies to any platform.


Accessing a user's profile with pretty URL persists the tab selection in the profile task flow. So, if the tab is changed in a user profile (i.e. to from Activities to Organization, and then another user profile is brought up with pretty URL, then it shows the last selected tab (i.e. Organization) instead of showing the 1st tab (Activities)

After clearing the JSESSIONID cookie manually, the problem goes away.

The same problem does not reproduce if looking at the users' profile after searching for the user in the Spaces search box.

Steps to Reproduce
1. Login to Spaces with a user

2. Access the following page to see testuser1 user profile:

The profile page comes up for testuser1 with the Activities tab active (1st tab)

3. Change to the Organization tab

4. Access the following page to see testuser2 user profile:

The profile page comes up for testuser2 with the Organization tab active (last selected tab) instead of the Activities tab (1st tab)
