How to make "find in this page" flash

Posted

I often use the "find in this page" tool, but sometimes the page is so busy with infomation of various colours I cannot identify where the highlighted text is. is there anyway to make it flash or some other way to make it more visible to the eye on a busy screen?

Hi NickStone25, unlike many other aspects of Firefox, I am not aware of an easy way to modify the appearance of the "found text" selection.

I don't know if it will help but generally speaking, if the found text is off the screen, when you move to it, it will be brought near the center of the screen vertically. So you could hit page up or page down and then next or previous to reposition the document.
