Summary0007909: Use the "direct link" to "Metrics Dashboard" reset the current selected project in TestLink
DescriptionWhen click on the direct link available in Metrics Dashboard for a project, the metrics Dashboard is displayed (in a new frame in my configuration).

The selected project in TestLink has been modified to an other project (always the same, not able to understand how this project is chosen) during this operation.
Steps To ReproducePrecondition : Several projects are available in TestLink

1) For Project A, in Metrics Dashboard, display the direct link
2) Click on the direct Link. A new frame is opened, showing Metrics Dashboard
3) Refresh the first Browser frame (example : to TestLink index) => the selected project has been modified.

If the project hasn't been modified, please try step 1 with an other project, you probably are in the default project.

First thing to remember is that Direct link are intended for access without been logged to testlink, not as a kind of shortcut.

Tested on Chrome : the same behaviour occurs

After implementation related to:#0007915
you will be logged out from testlink.
direct link are not designed to be quick navigation, but access without login.
In addition TestLink uses a lot Testproject id present on SESSION, and browsers (AFAIK) do not manage it at TAB LEVEL.

Conclusion: will not be fixed
