I found a very useful question on Stack Overflow. I forgot to bookmark the page or mark the question as favourite. After some 10days, I faced the same problem and I know that answer (the answer to that question I viewed 10days ago) is the perfect solution to my problem. I searched the question again, but it was really hard to find it out. It was nearly impossible to find that question by searching. Since I viewed that question as a user who has logged in, I hope that there might be my browsing history stored somewhere on Stack Overflow.

Is it possible to know the questions I viewed in the past?

  • Oh no. I am checking the firefox history. If I can't find it then I want to Ask these type of questions in metastackoverflow Right?.

No. If you have only viewed the question and you don't know it's link, the only possible option is searching.

However if you have voted on that post then you can view all posts you have voted for from the votes tab from your profile. Or if you have commented on that post then you can see that from activity->comments tab from your profile.

So if you want to see the answer in future then make the question as a favorite. Then you can find id from your favorite tab. Or you can search withing your favorite questions.
