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.

  • I've also seen Green background, Blue text, but it went away upon a page refresh.

  • 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. Aug 3, 2009 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. Sep 5, 2009 at 13:05
  • Hmm, okay. If it isn't actually meant to mean anything I guess we can call this one case closed.

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

  • I guess...I'm just passing what I read along.

  • If the bug is in the way it renders CSS, then why not? Aug 3, 2009 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? Sep 8, 2009 at 14:54
  • That explains why I fruitlessly searched for it in IE. I was worried already about getting blind ...

    However, first of all this is a BUG of Stackoweflow in Firefox, not a Firefox bug in Stackoverflow... yeah.. :)
