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
messages themselves.

That's fine, I'll give it a shot.  Thanks.

  From Googling, there also appear to be other text selection color
preferences, but I haven't investigated them:


Hope this helps.

Cheers, Bev
