How do you organize your favorites? My List gets longer and longer and it’s hard to find the entry I’m looking for. So it would be great to be able to sort them acording to their tags or even collect them in user defined folders.

Nice feature, but I don't think there is a possibility for it yet. –  Martin Scharrer Oct 27 '11 at 6:12

Seeing that there are a number of people here interested in this feature request, you might get an even wider audience and more admin attention at Meta Stack Overflow, which serves as a meta site for issues regarding all of the stackexchange sites, not only for Stack Overflow itself. Things work a bit differently here; I still tend to be slightly appalled by the excessive downvoting of suggestions one doesn't approve of, but I don't think your request will be confronted this way. –  doncherry Oct 28 '11 at 10:41
    
@doncherry: Thanks for this advice. I had a look at this meta site an found serval questions asking for a feature like the one I asked above but it seems there is still no solution in sight … So I don’t think it would be helpful to post it as a new question. –  Tobi Oct 28 '11 at 11:57
    
I put a tiny bounty on it, let's see if it yields any change. –  doncherry Oct 28 '11 at 14:36
    
@doncherry: Good idea thank you! –  Tobi Oct 28 '11 at 21:31

Well, we used to be able to search within our favorites, which was extremely helpful, but once we switched to Lucene.NET that went away for arcane (and difficult) technical reasons.

I suggest following up on http://meta.stackoverflow.com as there are several requests to improve favorites handling, but IMHO adding back the ability to search within favorites would be highly desirable at a minimum.
