  • (2018-04-17) Asfand Qazi: Qnother extension using ridiculously generic styles in it's stylesheets like 'ui-button', which clashes with existing pages and causes things to mess up! Please prefix something unique to your style names to reduce the chances of them clashing with pages.
  • (2018-02-11) Rifat Hussain: not working after 100 clicks
  • (2017-10-04) Francisco Gonçalves: Would be great if the scroll bar could also show the results, so you can go straight to the part of the document where most results converge
  • (2017-10-03) Gersivan Oliveira: É boa e bem útil. Falta "memorizar" as palavras. Elas somem após atualizar a página, sendo necessário digitar tudo novamente. Marca as palavras com radicais que combinam. Não suporta YT.

    Hi, I am not sure if I understand, will there be a solution for PDFs displayed in the browser as well? That would be so helpful... Thank you!
  • (2018-11-06, v: Владислав У.: [x] find whole word
    How to highlight "Java", but not "JavaScript"?
  • (2018-05-22, v: Giorgio Ursu: need to be improved
    some time by clicking on the icon does nothing

  • (2018-04-20, v: Gita Astari: It doesn't always work
    It's great, but it only works like 50% of the time for me. I wonder why that is.
  • (2018-02-11, v: Stephen Flynn: Highlighting a phrase
    Is there a way to highlight two words together as a phrase, not individually?
  • (2018-01-17, v: Asfand Qazi: Injected stylesheet
    Your stylesheet uses styles that are way too generic. For example, you have a style called 'ui-button' which center-aligns text amongst other things, which messes with the styles from our stylesheet which also uses a ui-button class. Please prefix your styles with something more unique to yourselves. Am disabling extension due to this.
  • (2017-07-26, v: FamKis: auto-sync
    MultiHighlighter really should sync automatically with search terms used in a search engine beforehand. Like the 'Conform SearchBox' Addon together with 'SearchWP' on Firefox -- the greatest search Addons of all times.
  • (2017-07-13, v: Josh Diaz: Options menu disabled
    On my version of this extension the options menu is not available. Why?
