Note this approach is no longer supported by FF 3.5+. See for explanation and links to the bug in FF that discusses the changed behavior.


I like the way Safari highlights text when using "Find in this page". Works on any page on any site.

If you find that the script is not working, please leave as detailed explanation as possible so that I can fix the problem.

If you like this script check out Bright Focus for Textboxes Only (modified) also which adds Safari like highlight on text boxes.
