There was a bug in the Accessibility Bookmarklets that made them not work with many HTTPS hosted websites and services.


Steps to uninstall, reinstall and test bookmarklets:
Step1: Delete current Accessibility Bookmarklets from your bookmarklets menu and/or bookmarklet toolbar
Step2: Reinstall Accessibility Bookmarklets from the install page: https://accessibility-bookmarklets.org/install.html
Step3: Go to a website with HTTPS protocol and test the bookmarklets to see if they highlight content correctly

If you have any problems please contact me or file an issue:
