Search markers doesn't work. windows 7 x64, FF 59.0.1 x64
custom highlighting option doesn't save. maybe thats the reason
Addon doesn't work at all, nothing happen when addon is on, or off, no difference in ff behavior.
Now that you implemented the display of search markers beside the scrollbar, your extension really ROCKS!!
Just an enhancement suggestion: when using a custom color, could you also change the color of the search markers in the scrollbar to be the same color as well?
Marked text lost focus when using "custom highlighting"
Finally! Search markers!
Congratulations, now it is the only usable highlighter extension available.
Makes Copy/Paste Hotkeys stop working. Must right click and choose "Copy" to copy anything. High drain for a simple funciton, disabling core functionality makes it big mistake though it sounds rather helpful.
This issue was not reproduced. Feel free to get in touch with me through the contact form at http://jgoudey.free.fr/highlightall/contact.php5.
Activates with ctrl+F8. I have a macbook, and my keyboard does not have F8. Went to website and could find no information on this.
Please make this more mac friendly.
TOP! Great job.
Unfortunately your contact form doesn't work (says mailserver down), so let me add some feature suggestion here:
1. Multi selection.
While holding CTRL it is possible to make multiple non-contiguous text selections (either by dragging the mouse or double clicking on words for example). Would it be possible to search for each of these selections automatically and highlight them in different colors? This would be very useful if you'd want to see where certain selections appear close to each other again on a page.
2. Trigger highlight by context menu
I usually select text with my mouse so the keyboard shortcut is a bit "far away" (and I don't want to have highlight activated all the time). Would it be possible to add a context menu entry to trigger the highlighting?
3. Keep the highlight even if the selection is reset
It would also be nice if the highlight could be kept active until either a new selection is made or highlight is made by the context menu added in 2, depending on how the highlight was triggered.
Thanks for the suggestions. I am working on evolutions that will make it possible. Point 2) coming soon. Stay tuned !
Just updated from Firefox 54 to Firefox 56 and it doesn't work in 56. This is already known and the developer has retooled it for Firefox 57; this review is just to let any other new Firefox 56 users who don't want to install Firefox 57 know that Highlight All is the culprit causing anomalies in their new Firefox 56 upgrade. I have about thirty extensions installed and I had to disable them one by one to find out it was Highlight All interfering with keyboard shortcuts. Unfortunately no version of Highlight All works in Firefox 56 and I don't want to upgrade to 57 and risk losing even more extensions, so for me Highlight All is no more. Regrettably, unless a rollback version is created (which is admittedly a lot to ask), I must snuff four stars that once blazed bright.
It is exactly that i need!
I use it on two PCs. It works fine on one and see no icon on second one. Why?
I am glad if you provide the button of icon on toolbar which activates HighlightAll, the great add-on.
How to make its work for text inside frame ?
Usable extension! Thanks!
All work fine in 57, but reinstall of addon is needed.
Does not work at all
It would be interesting to know what is your configuration. The extension has been thoroughly tested before being published and it is working on Windows and Linux systems at least. Feel free to send me a message on http://jgoudey.free.fr/highlightall/contact.php5 and leave me your email address so that I can help you identify the issue.
This add-on took half an hour of my life, because it did something with my copy/paste of FF. After disabling it it worked again. Furthermore, the addon does not work on all pages for example it doesn't work on "Review Board".
It has been broken by changes in recent Firefox versions. I am actively working on a new version for Firefox 57 which will be launched by mid-November.
Excellent add-on!!! Pleeeeeease... update to the new Firefox 57+ technology. :-)
The update for FF57+ is in progress... thank you for your patience ;-)
I love this add-on until it broke the Tab key behavior.... the most commonly used key when going through contents/fields/links/etc.
HighlightAll is currently broken indeed. See warning on the addon's description page.
Only leaving a one star to get noticed by creator.
With the new Firefox update the extension is now broken. It no longer highlights words, also it nullified copy/paste function in ALL text in firefox.
Otherwise this is a 5/5 extension that I use all the time to get better overview of my work!
I had been using this addon for ages, and it was very useful. Unfortunetely, Firefox 56.0.1 (64-Bit) showed a strange behaviour that I could track down to this addon. If activated, it is no longer possible to use the tab key to switch between entry fields on a web page, for example between username and password field. This is particularly bad if a password manager such as keypass is used to fill in username and password - both will end up in the username field because the tab key is ignored, the password is shown in clear text, and the username+password string is saved by Firefox's form autofill feature. If this issue is fixed, I would raise my rating again to five stars...
This was a really good plugin, and the only I can find that can automatically highlight text by selecting it, like a code editor. Very useful if it was working. But in the latest x64 version of Firefox I have managed to narrow it down that this plugin is blocking my from using my arrow keys to scroll web pages, and seems to block most of my CTRL-C commands of regular none editable text... very strange, and feels like it should not interfere with this. But I sadly have to disable this plugin till this is fixed... if it can be fixed soon I'm very happy and will change the review to 5 stars. As this is really the only plugin that does this thing I am looking for, and with a good amount of customization as well.
Great addon. One thing only. "Match Whole Words" switch is taken from firefox's built-in find. It would be nice to have such an option independently.
Great work. Its still a faithful companion.
Only one little bug: if i choose a color like yellow for background and black for foreground -> it twisted the colors.
Thanks for your comment.
Actually the behavior that you describe is not a bug, it is as designed within Firefox (it is the built-in functionality).
