Plain JSF will not execute any actions on a GET http operation; the only
thing it does for a GET is to render the page.

This also happens to be the recommended behaviour for RESTful webapps;
GET is supposed to be an operation that does not change any system state.

I think this is also the cause of your "render the previous page" issue.
When the user clicks normally on the link, what happens is actually a
form postback; this triggers an action method that then performs
navigation to the next page.  But when the user right-clicks on the
link, what happens is a GET; this does not trigger any action methods,
so no nagivation to the "next page" takes place. Instead, the current
view gets rendered again.
