For example, I really like viewing the questions by need answer, all tags, sorted by newest. However, when I go to and from other pages, I need to reselect these. For example, I may click on the logo to return to the questions list. When I do, it changes the view to new, recommended, sorted by recently active.
This question does discuss the view, but it appears that it's saying that show and sort are stored. I'm not actually seeing the behavior. For example:
I click on "need answer", I set the filter to "all tags", the show to "no answer" and the sort to "votes". Based on this question, I expect to be able to click on "Questions" and then on "need answer" and have my settings preserved. I don't see that - I see the filter set to "all tags", the show to "need answer", and the sort to "newest".
My bug (or maybe a feature-request, not sure yet) is that the "Questions" tab as well as the filtering, showing, and votes should be consistent every time I hit the homepage. For example, hitting the homepage should remember if I'm viewing by new, popular, or need answers. It should also remember my filter, show, and sort settings.
