Persistent Highlighter has earned a fairly good reputation and likely can be trusted.
Uninstalled when the "remove highlight" didn't work. Other than that it's okay. I think it's color selector is "bloated" (to many useless colors to choose from); sometimes simple is better.

Thank you very much! Thank god there's a simple web extension addon to highlight text in web pages (until a proper one appears). A tool to highlight is the simplest thing to do: insert "span background-color:#FFFF00 ..", but you can't find an editor/addon to do just this. Almost all of them can't edit previous saves, and if one does you must do things its way (no guarantees). Tested this with pages saved with SingleFile and worked!
