Recently I mistakenly closed one of my Favorite tags. When I added it back it appeared at the bottom of the list, but due to the ad for Career I now have to scroll down to click it. Is there a way to arrange the order of your Favorite tags?

edit based on responses: Please consider making it easier to re-arrange favorite tags. Delete them all, add them back in order does not seem user friendly.

Can you post a screenshot? I'm not sure if this is a matter of sorting tags or of it's a layout bug. –  Anna Lear Jul 15 '11 at 17:22
    
I can't post a screen shot. I just want to re-order the favorites in the order I want, not the order added, not sorted. –  dbasnett Jul 15 '11 at 17:28
    
Personalized sorting seems to be unnecessary. However, a simple alphabetic sort will help user visually locate tags faster. –  rwong Jul 17 '11 at 1:41
    
@rwong I can find them just fine, and don't want them sorted. –  dbasnett Jul 17 '11 at 12:15

This has come up a few times on Meta Stack Overflow:

http://meta.stackoverflow.com/questions/1975/ability-to-sort-reorder-interesting-ignored-tags-in-sidebar
http://meta.stackoverflow.com/questions/23488/sort-interested-ignored-tags-alphabetically

and this request to "lock" the tags so you can't accidentally delete one:

None of them are marked [status-declined] so the team will be open to implementing them if they think there's enough demand. Head over to MSO and up-vote these questions and make it clear you support them in other ways. I understand feature requests are looked at in order of votes.
