It's on the favorites tab of your user profile, which can be accessed via the link to your profile on every page, or directly by URL in the form of:

Something is wrong here! He can't have 4 pages with favourites, without knowing where to find them, can he? –  Ladybug Killer Nov 6 '09 at 12:56
    
ohh...thanks. i kept on marking questions as favorites. Today I needed to look at one of them and I couldn't find it! I've found it now. –  Lazer Nov 6 '09 at 13:00
    
@John apparently he can. –  Ólafur Waage Nov 6 '09 at 13:04
    
Perhaps he confused upvoting and marking as a favourite. –  Ether Nov 11 '09 at 23:38
    
Don't forget that your favorites are "publicly visible". This sounds like a privacy issue. –  Myobis Feb 27 at 11:21
    
@Myobis - I think I can see what you're driving at here, but is it a serious issue? –  ChrisF Feb 27 at 11:31
    
Serious enough that he would bother you in an answer that was posted 4 years ago (barring the edit as it didn't really change a whole lot about your answer). –  BoltClock's a Unicorn Feb 27 at 11:32
    
@ChrisF - Just noticed that my concern was already discussed as a distinct question. From me, it was just a remark but some people have apparently made a personal mission of this! –  Myobis Feb 27 at 22:09
