    Say, there's something in a post you want to do a search on. You can just highlight several words; everything gets highlighted. This is on IE9. Thanks.

    Might be a bug in that QUOTEME add-on. I will update to the newest version and see if that helps.

    A workaround might be to reply to the post and then select the words out of the quoted reply text? Then don't do the reply???

    I've found that if you hit the "Quote Me" after you highlight what you want, it copies only what you selected, even if the entire post was highlighted.
