Default Firefox : Unable to Highlight

I have been using Firefox for quite awhile, but recently, it seem to have lost the ability to highlight selected texts after I press Ctrl-F. I tried clicking on Highlight a few times but it still does not show, anyone know a fix for this? I have tried the firefox support forum, but it was buried so quickly that no one responded.

That is odd, i can. I suggest re installing it. Control+F on mine makes it to you can search for words, so why do you need to highlight?
are you saying that it wont highlight stuff to find it?

I'm Forgetful! so if i stop posting on something that i was helping you with... PM me or IM me

I have reinstall it. Twice actually. I was able to use Highlight before after clicking Highlight when I press Ctrl-f, but that no longer works.

did you try to select all (ctrl+a), and then hold control and select text with the arrow keys? I haven't tried Firefox (it looks too bland for me), but it should work?...
