Return to previous page after login?

Hi Sysops,  Can WikiTree be set to return to the previous page after login?  I often am reading a G2G or profile when I want to add a comment or answer or whatever.  OOpps!  I have to login first.  Do that.  Then instead of being returned to the page I was working on, I am returned to my Navigation Page.  I have to mess around trying to figure out where I was when I wanted to make a comment or whatever.

So, in short, can WikiTree be set to return me to the page I was working on before I stopped to login?

I realize this may not be possible in the program framework, or it might have to go on the To-Do List, but I hope it can be arranged fairly easily.  This is the way logins work on FamilySearch.org and AmericanAncestors.org, among others. Thanks for any help with this.  Kitty

You may want to add the sysops tag to you question, Kitty!!

What type of device do you use when you work at WikiTree; what browser; are you using a private computer or a shared device?

The answers to these questions might be useful information for sysops, as well as other members who may be having the same problem.
Thanks, Lindy.  This is on my desktop iMac with theChromo browser.

Hi Kitty, Set your browser to remember your login as well when you log in check the box that says keep me logged in. I am very seldom not logged in and only every few weeks have to log in. I usually open new pages in a new tab or window as to not lose my place or have to tick the back page arrow in the browser to go back one or more pages.

Unfortunately this approach does not work for those of us connecting to wikitree via our iphones.  When I click on a link to wikitree from email on the iphone, it ALWAYS asks me to log in.  Very annoying.
Hi Hi Jillaine, I find it very hard to work on an iPhone or Android smartphone or even using an iPad, I use my laptop and the chrome browser when doing serious work at WikiTree.
