When I use control-u I want to be able to find words in context. Right

I'm kind of desperate here...
You can use the ui.textSelectBackgroundAttention preference in
about:config. If it's not already there, add it as a new String. It's
value is the hex color of the background of the found text. For
example, setting it to #FF0000 makes the found text white on a red
background. You can play with the color, of course. I don't think
there's any way to do blinking though; at least, I don't know of any.
Note that this will not only affect what you see when viewing source
(Ctrl+U), but will also affect what you see when searching in mail/news
From Googling, there also appear to be other text selection color
preferences, but I haven't investigated them:
Hope this helps.
I should have mentioned that this works both in Firefox and Thunderbird.
