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 feature, see the "update" section in this answer.
