Yesterday, I clicked the star on a question to favorite it.

Today when I came back and checked my profile, it was not included on the favorites tab (sorted by newest).

It took me ages to find that question again, and when I did I can see that the star is on.

My question: Why does it not show in my favorites list, is it broken?

I thought "newest" referred to the question posted most recently, not when you starred it – simchona Oct 30 '12 at 0:44
@simchona Ahhh lol. Subject-adjective agreement failure :) I thought newest referred to the subject at hand, ie favorites. I'll blame bad UI design ;) Thank you. I found it somewhere towards the bottom of the list. – user147272 Oct 30 '12 at 0:48

Instead of newest you should sort by added. This will show you recently added first.
And newest will show the newest question (sort by asked date).

For e.g.,

Look at my newest favorites questions where you can see that the list is sorted by asked date.

Now look at my added favorite questions where you can see the latest added (made favorite) questions by me.
