Not sure where to put this but...

I have used TB for a very long time. Some years ago I added an app called Highlighter. It highlights text. But it has never worked perfectly or reliably.

I have read that this is because of something to do with the way TB works and suggesting that highlighting may never work. Indeed there are only two add-ons that do this and neither work well nor have been updated for a while.

My comment / question is simply "why not?" TB already has its own highlighting ability built into the's called "Tags". Granted, it is only used to highlight the subject lines of emails in folders such as Inbox. But if the ability is there why can't it be extended to text in the composition of an email?
