Cannot change footnote highlight color

Steps to reproduce

In Preview, when one clicks on a footnote link the cursor jumps to the text at the bottom of the page where the footnote’s text is, AND highlights the footnote for a brief moment. Then, when one clicks on the little return arrow, one is taken back to the original position in the text above, AND that position is briefly highlighted. The default highlight color is yellow.

I have used this code successfully, until 0.9.13:

.markdown-preview-view .mod-highlighted {
  color: var(--base3);
  background-color: var(--base4);

Expected result

The highlight color used to be the color I set in the code.

Actual result

From 0.9.13 the default highlight color, yellow, remains.
