I have read many questions about the topic. Apparently if I favorite a question, I should get notifications about it, but it's currently not the case. Apparently, there is a checkbox in the prefs tab of my profile about it. What I see is "Allow email notifications when I subscribe to questions or tags", which I have checked.

Unfortunately, I don't seem to understand how it works: I favorite questions, they get comments, edits, answers, and I am not notified in any way.

I saw info saying that this kind of feature is broken, but it was about a year ago. Certainly I've missed some stuff?

What am I doing wrong? How can I get updates about those questions I'm not involved in (without subscribing to individual RSS feeds)?
