  • When questions are sorted by "active", the timestamps and usernames refer to last activity.
  • When questions are sorted by "newest", the timestamps and usernames refer to creation.

This makes sense: if I'm sorting by newest, this means I'm interested in the creation dates, not in last activity.

But the list of favorites in user profile does not follow this logic. Sorting it by newest still displays the timestamps and usernames referring to last activity on the question:

favs

This is inconsistent with the behavior of /questions page, and also undesirable: if I wanted to know about activity, I would be on the "active" tab.
