Problem with back button


I have a question regarding navigation between Salesforce and Custom Tab Applications.

Users can navigate to our application through a Salesforce custom tab.

There are links within the custom application which navigate the user back to Salesforce (ie Account records, etc.). Once the user has seen the Account information When a user is finished browsing the Salesforce record, sh/e may click the back button in the browser to go back to the custome application. Our custom application is reloaded and the previous context of the application is lost. Is there a way for us to preserve the previous context?

I believe the context of our application is lost due to the Salesforce pages including the custom tabs inside iframes, where the parent page is set to automatically expire.

Is there anyway to workaround this?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I guess if you provide a link to a salesforce.com page you should open it in a new window.
