It would be nice if bug tracker allowed me to edit "mine" and other queries from the menu I see. Or if it's tricky to implement, may be just change "mine" query to list open/new issues? It's not backward compatible, yes, but it's a saner default IMO. Your call.
Sure, I get it. We have a feature implemented already (although not deployed), where you can create and save custom filters, for later re-use. I'll look into getting that merged in, but it probably won't be until next year due to the holidays.
Is there any update on this? I currently have the same issue where I click the built-in link for my issues only to get all issues, open and closed, whereas 95% of the time I only care about my open issues.
