What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

So far I have seen these colors for up voted answers:

Green background, Yellow text - Accepted Answer
Grey background, Dark Grey text - Normal Answer
Grey background, Blue text - ???

When the number of votes a question has is in blue, what does that signify?

Edit: I have seen this again today and I'm still not convinced it's a glitch.

Here is an example I managed to grab from my profile:

alt text

And another:

I've also seen Green background, Blue text, but it went away upon a page refresh. – DeadHead Jul 8 '09 at 17:42
Because they are sad... :( – jjnguy Jul 8 '09 at 18:04
If you see it again, could you provide a screenshot? I use Firefox on the SO sites and I don't know that I've seen this "glitch" before. – Jared Harley Aug 3 '09 at 13:18
Whether or not it's a problem with Firefox or Stack Overflow itself doesn't really matter - it's still a glitch in the sense that it's not supposed to happen and doesn't mean anything. – Kyle Cronin Sep 5 '09 at 13:05
Hmm, okay. If it isn't actually meant to mean anything I guess we can call this one case closed. – Sam152 Sep 8 '09 at 13:49

It doesn't mean anything actually. It is just a bug in Firefox.

A bug... turns text blue? – Sam152 Jul 9 '09 at 11:01
I guess...I'm just passing what I read along. – jjnguy Jul 9 '09 at 12:10
If the bug is in the way it renders CSS, then why not? – Paul Tomblin Aug 3 '09 at 14:53
It's kinda weird how it's only on some elements. Is there something that makes just those turn blue but not the others? – DisgruntledGoat Sep 8 '09 at 14:54
That explains why I fruitlessly searched for it in IE. I was worried already about getting blind ... – Joey Sep 15 '09 at 9:33
Haha, yeah, it is only in Firefox. – jjnguy Sep 15 '09 at 13:52
I've seen this so many times. I thought it had some meaning ^^ – marcgg Dec 22 '09 at 11:46
However, first of all this is a BUG of Stackoweflow in Firefox, not a Firefox bug in Stackoverflow... yeah.. :) – serhio Jan 7 '10 at 16:17
Still a bug in Firefox 3.5.7 – ChrisF Jan 25 '10 at 13:33
