Hello, I asked a question, got a response and decided to update the question.

Being in edit mode, I decided to cite some info from the answers but I do not see any link to the question in view mode. And I even do not have an idea how to reach there in a couple of clicks. I remember that there was such a link before, because I used it.

Why is it gone? Is it a bug? Or does everyone remember exacly the answers and the names of those who answered now?

related (kind of the opposite): Display the original question beneath the answer edit form. Seems like some other requests (e.g. What happened to the “Return to answer” link?) have always only been made for answer-editing, not question editing. – Tobias Kienzler Aug 9 '10 at 12:45
I hope you don't mind my turning this into a feature-request, but this would certainly be useful – Tobias Kienzler Aug 9 '10 at 12:46
@Tobias Kienzler: no objections. I thought the link had disappeared unintentionally =) – newtover Aug 9 '10 at 16:00
@Tobias Kienzler: I have just realized that I used the link in answers (there is one there), and never in questions. Then it is certainly a feature request. I am sorry. But it would be usefull in questions as well ) – newtover Aug 9 '10 at 16:19

And I even do not have an idea how to reach there in a couple of clicks.

Workaround for the moment: Select all text in the question and copy. Click back button. Open the edit link in a new tab, select all and paste.

As Bobby points out, its even easier with Firefox: A middle-click on the back-button opens the question in a new tab.

In Firefox you can middle-click on the back button, so that it opens in a new tab. – Time Traveling Bobby Aug 9 '10 at 13:20
@Bobby: Nice, i never noticed. – Georg Fritzsche Aug 9 '10 at 13:26
The same works in Chrome too. If you don't have a middle mouse button, use Ctrl+Click. – Andy E Aug 9 '10 at 13:52
This exacly I had to do, and I did not like it. Thanks to @Bobby for the tip. – newtover Aug 9 '10 at 16:02
