Description

3 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:44.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/44.0
Build ID: 20160209234513

Steps to reproduce:

Searched a single character with the site search function started with Ctrl+F


Actual results:

The search results highlighting made it extremely annoying to get an overview of multiple occurances on the same page. it was necessary to do forward and backward jumping to find results with the buttons for the next and previous results which made reading unnecessary hard


Expected results:

Smart highlighting avoiding the above issues (e.g. Safari darkens the background).

I agree, this is getting quite annoying sometimes.
