Using "Favorites" feature

I'm trying to use the "add to Favorites" editor menu option for the first time and it does not seem to do anything.
I was trying to use it in a file with xml extension (but not well formed) I don't know if it may be related.
I created a new favorites list (with a topic-related name), and then tried to add my file to it.
THe list appeared in the project tree browser, but stays empty.

Is it supposed to work ?

Investigating further, something changes : when the list is created it displays "nothing to display" in the panel.
After trying to add my file to it, this message is not displayed anymore and i get this exception a few seconds later when i switched to firefox to write this message.

No message
