make "Highlight All" repeat the search after transition to a new page


(Toolkit :: Find Toolbar, enhancement, P5)






(Reporter: pabs3, Unassigned)


When I press Ctrl+F to open the Find Bar to search a page and enable "Highlight All" I am often doing this in code search results and so I want the next page of results I click on to also be highlighted. Right now I have to click once to get to the next page and then once more to highlight the other word that I am looking for. It would be nice if the highlight could be made persistent, either by default until the Find Bar is closed or the search changed, or via an about:config option added to enable the persistent mode.
