Parameters I send to a JSF app using Glassfish 3.1.2 through a URL are not being used

I am attempting to use a URL "localhost:8080/page1.xhtml?confId=123456" with a parameter using JSF and Glassfish 3.1.2.  The URL is part of the body of an email I send to a user.  When the user clicks on the email link they are taken to a web app called the "ReviewerApp".

The user logs into the "ReviewerApp" but the parameters I sent in the URL are not used and they are taken to a default page instead of the intended page in the "ReviewerApp".  

I can then open another browser window and paste the original URL in that browser while keeping the first browser window open and they are taken to the correct page in the "ReviewerApp".

How can I make it so that the user is taken to the correct page in the "ReviewerApp" after they log into the "ReviewerApp" the first time, without having to open another browser and pasting the URL in that browser?

When the user clicks on the URL in the body of the email they are redirected to the login page initially.  But then when they log in and the code attempts to retrieve the parameter it is not available.
