JSF Portlet - how to maintain initial state of portlets in navigating portal pages

I am having an issue of maintaining initial state in portlets (JSF) when we navigate from one page to other in portal.

In Weblogic Portal Server 8.1 (SP5), whenever we are making any navigations within a Java Portlet based on JSF, the portlet retains the state of the last navigated jsp.
After that, even if we click a link and navigate to some other portal page,on coming back to the previous portlet,the lastly navigated jsp is rendered.

For example,
1. We open Portlet A in Portal main page which has A.jsp as its INIT VIEW in portlet.xml
2. From A.jsp we make a submit and navigate to B.jsp within Portlet A.
3. Now we go another page which takes us to Portlet B.
4. We come back to Portlet A in previous page
Now Portlet A loads with the lastly navigated B.jsp instead of A.jsp.
5. It is impossible to reach A.jsp within Portlet A.

Is there any configuration change required so that we can specify that on load of "FIRST PORTAL Page", all portlets are in the initial view mode, and not where it was navigated previously ?
