Upon entering the "suggested edits" tab under /review, previously sticky options for displaying /review posts are reset.

Settings for no-random and customsort is lost, while filter is reset to the default filter=day. Stickiness of pagesize is not affected.

Repro steps:

  1. Go to one of the /review tabs and choose your filter and sort order (here's a shortcut).

    stick in options

  2. Click on the "suggested edits" tab. Options appear to be sticky.

    options appear to be sticky

  3. Click back to one of the other tabs. Most options are lost or reset!

    stickiness lost

This is rather annoying and I find myself avoiding the suggested-edits tab just so I don't have to reinstate my options by scrolling all the way down the page to disable random ordering, then hunt for the custom sort options in the sidebar halfway down the page.

I can bypass this problem by bookmarking one of the tabs with the appropriate querystrings in place, but this shouldn't happen in the first place.

From what I can tell, pagination post count is already sticky. – Shawn Chin Nov 14 '11 at 17:29
That's what I thought. Maybe that question needs updated. – Jason Plank Nov 14 '11 at 17:37

Currently, I'm using this amateurishly written UserScript (RestickSticky) to bypass the issue by adding the current querystring to the tab links so that the settings stick when navigating away from "suggested edits".

However, this will not work if /review/suggested-edits is the last tab used. The next time we come back to /review, it defaults to the suggested-edits tab and previous options are lost. For this situation, I use another another UserScript (Accessible CustomSort) to make the sort options accessible without unnecessary scrolling.

view with random ordering disable

view with random ordering enabled

This does not solve the problem, but it does make it more bearable.
