How can I make found text flash?


When using "cntl f" to find text on a webpage I sometimes cannot find the text after it found by the browser. Is there some way to make the found text stand out more? Flashing or highlighted would be nice. I am using Linux Mint 18 Cinnamon 64 bit with the Pale Moon 27.0.3 browser.

only if the browser has this feature.
or maybe an addon exists?

Maybe https://www.palemoon.org/support/Pal...der_v1.3.2.pdf has some info?

Here's the Firefox article,

maybe the key pairs are "universal"?

Added about:config line ui.textSelectBackgroundAttention #ffff00

Thank you. I added a line to my about:config to change the background color to yellow for the found text.

Code:
ui.textSelectBackgroundAttention #ffff00
I found the directions at http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...ors-in-FireFox

I have not had much success with posting on the Pale Moon forum in the past. I suspect that they do not have the user base that this site has.

Having a yellow backgound does make the text hard to read because the text turns to white.

thanks, this works nicely.
actually the default search dialog has a "highlight all" option anyway, but it's always nice to be able to customize.
