The idea probably is to undo the highlighting with right click. But it doesn't account for actions (for example text editing) between the highlighting and pressing right click for undo

This seems a counterpoint to Highlight mode issue in bug 119753, bcz when inserting into a text span being highlighted, here the <Esc> toggles the mode off--while launching context menu clobbers the inserted text.

Something is muddled with controls for Highlight formatting.
