Getting there... Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I've been using this highlighter for a few days now. Right away I noticed a few issues, but they weren't show stoppers and were easily worked around. The first being that the "highlight selected text" button wouldn't highlight text if it was placed on the navigation bar instead of the add-on bar, as is my preference. I was also disappointed that there weren't basic keyboard commands, which would speed things up for us command junkies.Just now, and what reminded me to write this review, was my "undo most recent highlight" button stopped working. It's not even selectable, as my cursor changes to the text-selection cursor when hovering over it. This is a pickle because the highlighter can highlight more than intended.Overall lots of potential. With a few bug fixes I'd give it 4 stars, and keyboard commands would earn it a 5.


Thanks for the reply. I use macs, so in my case command + option (alt) + H. But if I can learn to use command + D for bookmarks, anything will work haha.

I'm happy to know you're doing your best with this app. I tried every bloody highlighting app available for FF 17 last night, and this is the only one with serious potential to live up to what I expect a highlighter app to be. Keep up the good work [=

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (initial.rev513.1-signed.1-signed). 

Working on it

The inappropriate mouse pointer in color selection is actually something I know how to do, so it's a simple round tuit.I didn't even know these widgets could be moved to the nav bar. I'll have to try that.I'll see what I can do about invokation by keystrokes. What key bindings would make logical sense to you? MS Word uses Ctrl-Alt-H for highlighting text. I'm guessing that would be a good place to start. I'll try to make that happen in a bout a week more or less.Highlighting more than intended is at the very top of my concerns. I'm deepening my understanding of the DOM every day and have been experimented with .find, .surroundRange and a few other strategies, but that particular problem has been persistent indeed.

UPDATE: Ctrl-Alt-H (& presumably whatever the Mac equivalent is) is in place in upcoming version, available now at
