How enable highlighting find results on scrollbar ? For years I used FindBar Tweak add-on which I loved, but recently with FF57 it's over so as I talked with folks and they miss too for this feature. So to these who dont know whay I'm talking about - look at https://addons.mozilla.org/pl/firefox/addon/findbar-tweak/ and https://addons.mozilla.org/pl/firefox/addon/scrollbar-search-highlighter/ and you realize that searched words are counted and - what is most important - was highlighted (violet color) on scrolbar. How recover that feature, what new add-on can we use to this ?

Well it will not be coming back as the Developer says.

You can search here for other Developers addons/Extensions by copy/paste the key words into the search bar on this URL : https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/extensions/ Will soon see why say copy/paste highlight , find results etc

fyi : Mozilla only ok's Extensions submitted by Developers to be used with Firefox. They ok them only and give the Developer a web page to distribute their Extension from. This in no means that Firefox Support does the Developers Support when their page has a Support link and a contact Link.

If it means so much to you you can do this : Going back : unfortunately 56.0.2 and below is no longer safe to use for every day use do to security issues, but 52.5.3 ESR. It will continue to get security updates until May 2018, and you can download and install it from this page:

Note : Legacy Extensions will be deleted or removed in any version update after May 2018.

You should make a backup of your Profile before going back and just because:

Pkshadow - thank you for reply. I know that these 2 add-ons will not be coming back as the Developer says. I know that I can - using trials and errors dig thru whole big repository of hundrets addons - but it's not what I asked. FF It's not niche software, it's used by millions around the world so I assume that I'm not only who is missing of this feature but earlier many ppl too. So I would ask if anyone found one useful addon which replaced missing feature and can share this news with community - to not open opened doors twice :)

Maybe Firefox developers add this search highlighting in the scroll area? opera/chrome have such feature!
