Looking at my user page in SO, I can see a small star with a number underneath for each question of mine which has been "favorited". So far so good, but that star turns out to be clickable, and clicking it does nothing.

Is that a bug? I'm not an HTML expert, but peeking at the source indeed shows that the div showing the favorite count is outside the div with the onclick event which surrounds the other question statistics (votes, answers, views).

In the updated user profile these are now clickable so you can unfavorite them without leaving the page.


It does highlight that there is a tooltip, but I believe you've correctly identified a UI inconsistency, as all other hand pointers do link somewhere.
