Could it be that the SP cookie is not being removed on logout?

I requested an account with the SP and that just now has been created. It is giving me the same errors. Works fine on the initial login, then I logout and paste the exact url into my browser and get the same result of Stale Request. The parameters in the link are providerID and target.  I've tested this with both chrome and firefox with the same result thinking it was browser related.

 If I open in a private browser, I login fine, then logout. I open a new tab, close the original tab and paste the URL into the URL bar. Also gives me a Stale Request.

That's just not what it does, so they can't be hitting that URL again, they're accessing something else. With only providerId and/or shire as parameters, there's nothing in the link that would or could cause that error.
