Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

A few days ago I searched for highest voted questions in stackoverflow. Today when I logged in and clicked the questions link, it is showing the highest voted questions (of all time). I tried clearing the browser history, cache etc. Even I tried another browser. But the problem still remains. How can I restore the default behavior?

Your list will maintain the last ordering setting you selected. If you go to featured, then refresh the page, you will stay on featured.

As this is linked to your account, you will have to click newest first. When you do, your preferences will be set to newest by default.
