I have noticed that when using the HTTP version of the SE chat site that if I say go to the favorites section and go into a chat room, or I simply go to that section or another section and leave the site, when I come back it will be on the tab I last left it on which is rather nice and useful because I want it to always be on the favorites tab.

However on the HTTPS version of the site this functionality does not work for every time I go to the site it ignores my last selected tab and just takes me to the site tab by default which I find rather annoying.

My browser is Firefox 47.

  • I am, it's been not working for about half a year now (ever since I started using the HTTPS version). – user280862 Jun 8 '16 at 20:08
  • @nicael: What I find most annoying though is the fact that I enter a room by click on it in my favorites list, but then when I leave the room I am taken to the site tab instead of the favorites tab from which I came (or wherever I came from). And I am sure that it remembered on the HTTP version. – user280862 Jul 15 '16 at 23:15
