Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Sometimes it shows this icon green:

Is it some type of feature or bug of Stack Exchange?

Note: I have notice it in Firefox and Safari.

It's a feature.

When you get an achievement that doesn't award reputation (for example, when you get a badge), the icon lights up green.
