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

It used to be when I list the questions in one of my favorite tags, all of them were highlighted. A few weeks/months ago this changed. (Why this matters: I'm trained to mostly look at the highlighted questions, because that's the tags I know something about. Now habit makes me skip over questions in the tag I know most about. It drives me nuts, but I can't help it, Mr. Pavlov seems to be much stronger than I am.)

At first I thought it's trouble with my browser, so I cleared its cache. In the past that has helped whenever I had trouble with SO. But it didn't help this time. So I'm forced that it's either a bug or a feature I haven't heard about and which I don't understand. Previous experience suggests that it is a feature, but I still don't understand it.

So why aren't all questions highlighted anymore when I few those of one of my favorite tags?

It's a bug. I didn't get very far with it:… – Uphill Luge Jan 31 '11 at 12:15

It's a feature, see the "update" section in this answer.
