Since Chrome 90, there has been a feature which allows users to highlight some text on a given webpage and create a link which, when visited, highlights the text again. The link is appended with #:~:text= with the text to be highlighted being URL encoded and put after. A simple but incredibly useful feature I recon Firefox could benefit from.
Thanks for submitting an idea to the Mozilla Connect community! Your idea is now open to votes (aka kudos) and comments.
In Chrome when on a web page you can highlight text anywhere in the page and even a lot of text then right click then left click "Copy Link To Highlight" and this enters in the Windows Clipboard a link that when copied into Gmail will take a Chrome user to that web page and navigate to that text and highlight it for them. This is obviously a great efficiency boost.
This works in Gmail, Google Docs, Google sheets, MS-Excel spreadsheets when it calls chrome and MS-access when it calls chrome in VBA code. Unfortunately it does not seem to work in Firefox. I even tried opening Gmail in Firefox and it did not work when I clicked on such a link.
It seems rather surprising that Firefox does not support this feature so I was wondering if I was missing something here. I checked for this right click feature in Firefox and it is not there. So I assume Firefox does not have this feature yet. I am sure Firefox users would love this feature and the vote count would be very high. Even better if Firefox has the right click option as well.
