Re-appearing login prompts are never issues with the web server
because auto-login is a client-side optimization for authentication.

Thus, unless your developers added in custom authentication of their
own, your issue is either with the browser, the networking layer
between the browser and server, your configuration of the web server,
or the AD used by the web server.

The most direct way to prove where the problem lies is to obtain a
network-trace of the HTTP request/response that result in the
unexpected sign-in challenge. There are other ways, but they are all
indirect, and I do not recommend wasting time with indirect methods.
