I went to edit my question, and got put into a revision editing list somehow, and I see that someone has edited it since I started, but there's no link back that I can find. Would it be possible to add one?

Does the <- button in the upper-left corner of the browser not count? – James McNellis Sep 19 '10 at 21:31
Or Crtl/Cmd-click that Back button, to have most browsers open the previous page in a new tab or window. – Arjan Sep 19 '10 at 21:40
@James: No, because almost every time I want to reopen the question, it's to double-check something in the middle of editing, and therefore I want it in a new tab. The back button does not help. – Aarobot Sep 19 '10 at 23:04
Then, @Aarobot, what about that very same Back button while holding down Ctrl or Cmd, like I commented? (Middle-click might do the same trick.) – Arjan Sep 20 '10 at 0:10

Bit of a pita, I agree. Pasting the URL back minus "edit" produces "Page not found". Leverage the tabbed browsing feature that your browser supports. Edit in another tab so you've always got a source tab to get back to the question.

It's a problem in general, the envelope is another example. Jeff & co work on "check what's going on" once a day, maybe a couple of times a day. Not quite compatible with the 9 minutes that a question can survive on the front page. We might not have done a great job explaining how we use the site.
