I know that one can vote up other people's question and the answer or comment to that question. I am wondering that if there is a way to "save" or "mark" the favorite questions or answers from others? It seems that one can only do this for his/her own questions.

Edit: I think my question should be: how to go back to the questions or answers I like?

You can use the favorite star under the voting arrows on questions to mark a question as a favorite.

Then you can find these favorite questions in your user profile, under the favorites tab.

    $\begingroup$ So, per "questions or answers" is there any inclination to have a "favorite answer" button? The only place where I would see a difference is when a question has a great many answers. $\endgroup$ Apr 20, 2011 at 0:09
  • $\begingroup$ @carl all favorites are at the question level at this time, but you can bookmark questions in your browser using the "link" menu item next to each answer -- in Firefox at least you can right click and select "Bookmark This Link" directly, but I don't see that option in Chrome or IE9. $\endgroup$ Apr 20, 2011 at 3:09

In the Firefox Browser, I use the "favorites" button to save things I want to go back to. I believe that similar features are available in other browsers and so this isn't something that stack exchange needs to address.

  • $\begingroup$ But, that doesn't give much info about the problem, compared to looking at your favorite questions on stack exchange. So, it could be something that stack exchange looked into. $\endgroup$
