Still working With Firefox v43.01 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

While this still works with the latest version of Firefox (see title), I wish someone smarter than I would update this extension so that Firefox wouldn't try to disable it due to their new screwy policies.

If anyone knows of a good replacement highlighter that works with the mouse and has easily accessible color options, please leave a comment in a review.

update: (November) 11-09-11 He switched to another website:

I have used this addon for many years. One of my favorites. I have also used the Highlighter update from and it works good.

I just went to his page again and I see he also made that BetterPrivcy one which I'm going to test out on my test Sandboxie Firefox install.

With NettiCat's Highlighter update I can now make the switch to Firefox 4.0.1 The last addon I've been holding out on.

Since it's been so long I hope NettiCat just makes his own and calls it Highlighter Plus or Highlighter2.
So I guess it still gets a 5 since I've used it for so many years. But since it hasn't been updated for so long, really a 3, but with the alternative that works great then it's still a 5 in my book.

u11-09-11 I've made it work up to 7.0.1 changing the Max version to 8.* but this trick is not actually working for version 8.0 Final. Anyone have a solution?

I absolutely __love__ this addon.

Some time ago i found link here to witch has working Highlighter add-on(at bottom of page). You may need to install "Add-on Compatibility Reporter" to be able install it.

Please update. It is an extremely useful add-ons for Firefox.

Fantastic but now defunct add-on Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This was one add-on I used every day. It was fantastic, but the developer no longer updates it

Someone please make this work with current Firefox releases!

How about...? Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I don't think this meets my needs, but it does look good... although I can't try it because its not compatible with Firefox 3.6.10

What I would really like to find is a search function within Firefox that will allow me to:

1. Open a search box and enter an infinite number of word to search on a web page or web document
2. This search box will have Highlight and Colour Code options for all the different words I am searching... Also with an option to group words by highlight or colour code
3. Save and back up multiple search settings to continue search another time

Has anyone or can anyone design something like this?

Fonctionne avec Firefox 3.6.8...avec le lien suivant.... Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent addon !
Fonctionne avec Firefox 3.6.8. mais avec un version modifiée disponible ci après (tout en bas de la page du site).
Le plus simple, léger et efficace !

Merci à NettiCat qui a posté ceci:
"A version working with Firefox 3.6 and higher is available here, at the bottom of the site:"

Longue vie à la communauté !

Won't let me install it. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Please update for the latest Firefox version. This is just what I need but I'm not allowed to use it. Also, what's with that button which says "install anyway"? It doesn't let you install it if you click the link.

I agree with phamti. This is the best highlighter tool available. Nice and simple.

Thanks NettiCat. Don't know how I'd keep track of press releases and SEC docs without this tool.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thanks NettiCat! I got my favourite highlighter tool back. The problem with the other ones is they connect to servers and do complicated things.

I just want a highlighter that is simple. One nice feature, if you do a save as to save the page locally it will keep the highlights.

Since this add-on doesn't work at all with 3.6.3 even after changing the maxVersion, I found a similar add-on so we can all highlight again.
It's called TextMarker!
Unfortunately that add-on also needs to have the maxVersion tweaked, it doesn't have a toolbar icon -- you have to either find it on the right click menu or you can use the "B,N,M key to highlight -- 3 different colors", unlike this one -- it doesn't give a warning and all highlights are gone once the page is refreshed; but it works and like this one -- it doesn't save/bookmark highlights on other webpages in case others use the browser or you don't want your privacy compromised. So use that till this is ever updated.

The good extension, but incompatible with FF 3.6.3, even after a maxVersion overriding for compatibility, Please, update it!

I am in GU and was using this addon and liking it until FF discontinued it in the new version of FF. I sure wish they would put it back. Great addon.

I really like this plug-in. It does exactly what it says. As a bonus, I found that after highlighting if you do save as, and load the page locally, the highlights remain.

I just wish it would work with the newest firefox, 3.6.2.
