Search in favorited question?

The favorite feature on SO is right now a bit useless, at least to me.

I have 8 Pages of favorites, and sometimes I just remember "Hey, I favorited a question about the problem I'm having!", but I don't know when, so the sorting doesn't help.

I would love to see a new search-keyword "favorite:1" that only searches within my favorites. That way I could use it as my bookmark/personal search scope.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Does that help?… – Ladybug Killer Jan 5 '10 at 8:11
A bit, but not really. That way, I have titles, but sometimes the desired string is in the questions or one of the answers. I had 2 or 3 times where I only knew "it was something about jQuery in one of my favorites", and that was hard to find :) – Michael Stum Jan 5 '10 at 9:47
@Michael: The accepted answer or any of the other answers for that matter maybe didn't help, but this is the same feature request, no? – fretje Jan 5 '10 at 11:13
There are some more thing that can be done for favorites. have a look at my post and vote up if you agree: – gsharp Apr 17 '11 at 18:18
For those who came here via Google, like me, this does work now: – patrickvacek Dec 3 '13 at 16:16

A search for all parts of your profile would be good - favourites, comments, answers. Something that becomes available after 100 reputation perhaps.
