It'll help to find a specific term in manuals and such. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Enter search term 2. Activate highlight 3. Browse to another page Actual Results: "Highlight" goes off Expected Results: With the "persistant" option the browser would "automagicaly" search for the term without jumping to it but highlighting every occurance on the page.
This is similar to the enhancement i suggested: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=266538 I would like to see Highlight as always enabled, but i prefer that the search is diabled if i browse to another page. So there is no need to disable the search.

I vote for wontfix. This should be done by an extension.
(In reply to comment #3) > I vote for wontfix. This should be done by an extension. > The find bar shows two options: * Case-sensitivity * Result highlighting The former is persisted, while the latter is not. I think this bug should be fixed.
