Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

My problem is Favorite button in questions. I want to use it as Favorite to book good questions or questions with good answers that I can later reference. But at the moment I more often using Favorite button simply to be notified about progress of solving question which I answered. It would be nice to separate booking and notification subscribtion.

You can use it for either of these things, but not both.

Notice on your user page under the preferences tab there is a checkbox:

[ ] I don't want notifications of activity on questions I've favorited

If you have this checked, you have bookmarks. If you leave it unchecked, the default, you have tracking of arbitrary questions.

I recommend using your browser's bookmarking facility for plain vanilla bookmarking -- Google Chrome has an excellent shared state bookmarking tool (through GMail accounts) built in, for example.

On askubuntu there is no [ ] I don't want notifications of activity on questions I've favorited. There is only [ ] Allow email notifications when I subscribe to questions or tags. I am not sure how to subscribe to a question though – Vuade Jan 9 '13 at 11:43
