If I want to sort a user's questions by newest, and then click on a question, and then go back to the user's page, SO resorts by votes instead of newest. It seems like it doesn't remember my sorting here, even though it does everywhere else. This is a bit of pain, and it'd be nice if it was more consistant.


You can always open the question in a new tab.
