This is an encouraging step forward. 

Of course we shouldn't forget that the situation for Kindle Reader apps is even better as they implement simultaneous real-time text highlighting as well (I assume that Firefox does not provide this as they don't say that they do). I also note that in the Kindle app you can swap to an OpenDyslexic font to, possibly, further improve the reading experience.

Best regards

Mike
