Highlights are not integrated with the navigation history

Bug Description


In the ebook viewer, whenever we go on a highlighted section of a book through the highlights panel, the previous reading location is not saved in the navigation history. It is then not possible to go back to the previous location by the Back action. In my humble opinion, this is quite diminishing the utility of this very nice hight light feature as each time we go to an hight lighted text, it is a pain to go back to the previous reading location.

Note that in the highlights panel, the button "Go back to where you were before searching" is not doing anything (last time I look at the code, its look like the highlights panel was not handling this action of this search panel).

Best regards,
