Sometime this morning, all of a sudden questions tagged with any of my favorite tags on SO stopped being highlighted.
The marked tags are among my favorites so these posts should be higlighted.
Do others see this as well? Is this a planned change, or something weird is going on? I could not find any info about this on the blog or on here.
I am using Firefox 3.6.13 on WinXP.
Soon after posting this, I noticed more weird behaviour:
- the tag edit button does not appear anymore when I hover next to tags in questions,
- the Tag Favorites and Tag Subscriptions tooltip does not appear anymore,
- Ctrl+K does not work anymore in the editor,
- the notification about receiving a new badge does not appear anymore (the page is shifted down, but only a blank space appears without any text).
These might be connected to the above phenomenon. Apparently some sort of script blocking? Since noone else is complaining loudly, this might be a quirk in my local environment (possibly some firewall/proxy issue?).
After pressing Shift+Refresh on the SO page, the highlighting reappeared at once, also the other issues seems to have disappeared. So apparently it was some local problem indeed (some broken data in the cache?).
