In the past (on all SO sites, including this one), when I clicked on a link it changes colour to signify that I've viewed it. This allows me easily to see where I left off reading prior in the list as well as if I've viewed questions before.

I noticed today I clicked into a question and there was no colour change on return to list or after hard refresh of the page. Was this a chance (intentional or otherwise)?

I did not have the same problem on Stack Overflow (main), rpg or arqade (3/3 I checked) so seems to be here specifically, thus assuming not my webbrowser either (which currently is Safari on MacOSX if it matters).

  • I discovered today that if I type in the URL of the website in Safari this functions correctly but if I use the frequently visited section it doesn't. That lends me even further to believe this is a Safari bug (tho it may affect other browsers as this feature exists across them).

  • Thanks, I checked and it does work in Chrome. Weird other SO sites work. Offchance were you using Safari too? That'd clue me if it was some sort of setting.

  • For the record this workaround worked for me in Safari: discussions.apple.com/thread/7490591. I'm going to assume it's Safari somehow, tho the blue colours are not the same, so I don't understand how it would be. Maybe a Safari bug. Thanks for the tip tho, accepting answer.
