Now that the Favorite Tags have the bubble popup, can you please remove the obnoxious delete buttons near every tag?

I keep deleting them by accident...

While there's an option to add/remove the tag to/from your "Favorite" list there's no option to add/remove the tag to/from your "Ingored" list. – ChrisF Jan 14 '11 at 12:31
@ChrisF - I don't care about the Ignored Tags list - I never click on the tags there, and never miss them and delete them by accident. There's also the "prefs" tab on the user page, by the way. – Kobi Jan 14 '11 at 13:35

I don't know about you, but mine always looked like this:

Favourite tags with close button inside tags

Which always made me wonder why this question still exists: Move the remove tag "X" icon inside the tag in interesting/ignored tags

I kid, I kid... that was my own userstyle. Similarly, one can be used to accomplish this too:

@namespace url(;

domain("") {

#interestingTags .delete-tag {
  display: none !important;


Remove the #interestingTags bit will also remove the delete button from the ignored tags area.
