Can you add highlighter of the text into Firefox PDF reader. For me this is more important than adding text and drawing in it.

ADD HIGHLIGHTERS TO PDF EDITING

Kindly Add highlighters to the PDF edit section : This would be more useful to a lot more users and make it even more useful, that is highlighter with the basic colors that can be selected on the go, and highlight texts in a straight line... Thanks in Advance.

@plutonium that's a popular request - there's actually a separate thread here:

Dark mode for Embedded pdf Viewer 

Feel free to upvote and add your input there. It always helps when we review ideas.

Thanks!

Few highlighters colors (predefined). Could be: yellow, green, orange, red, purple and blue (like real "stabilo") with 35% of opacity.

That's only example, development team could check for best renderer 🤗

Integration of HIGHLIGHTER and SAVE option in Firefox Browser PDF Reader

Firefox PDF reader already have double page viewing, rotating pdf features but  lacks HIGHLIGHTER, HANDTOOL(for lighter scrolling) , SAVE the highlighted pdf  facillity, which other browsers owns.

Please add that feature which would be really useful for online e-book readers to notedown the important points on their e-books.
