Whilst trying to debug this issue, I've noticed something slightly odd.

If you go into preferences and add an interesting or ignored tag, then hover over it, the tooltip will show "click to delete this tag" - even though clicking at that point will actually view the questions associated with the tag. It's only the "x" (which has an accurate tooltip) which deletes the tag from the list.

  • It's interesting that the tooltip for new tags is "click to delete this tag" but the one for the "x" is "remove this tag". Aug 16, 2009 at 19:22

We fixed the tooltips! Probably over a year ago, but sometimes we forget to update meta.


Good catch. I wonder if that is a possible left-over of a long past time when actually clicking on the tag would remove it from the list or whether it is just a casual mistake.

  • No idea - but the nice thing about this bug is it's likely to take less time to fix than it took me to describe :)
