I think that a person's bug page is used much too often to have a bookmark
be the best solution to their frustration with navigating it. There are two
different situations when a user might want to return to a specific search
listing. One, when they are starting their work on bugs for the day,
and two, when
they have finished editing a bug and want to get back to whatever search results
they were using at the time.

The first item could avoid yet another configuration that users don't know
about by just remembering the last search options they used on the person's bug
page. It might seem like the browser history solves the second item, but if the
user has made several edits to the bug, they have to read the page title for
several items in the history and hope they choose the right one. Gmail has a
nice solution for this. If you are reading an email, there is always a
link in the
same place which says either "Back to MAILBOXNAME" or "Back to Search Results".
