This has always perplexed me. The tab for Favorites say that there are 4 Favorite questions which had some activity since I last visited this tab. Okay.

I always see some questions get highlighted but they never seem to match the number of questions mentioned on the tab. In this case, only 2 questions are highlighted whereas the tab mentions 4.


As far as I can tell, it tries to highlight the questions with the most recent activity - but what is the criteria if it doesn't always match the number mentioned on the tab.

Is this a bug or by-design? How does highlighting work in the Favorites tab?

  • @Juhana: I did search for it but didn't find that question. So, thanks for the link. I have read the answers, understood them and would try to see if what is stated there is correct, if not would update this question. – Aditya Apr 16 '13 at 13:14
