Any ideas

I'm rather keen on avoiding an detecting nofollow situations

You should probably contact the extension's developers if the highlighting is failing, however to get around the problem you can create a user CSS file defining special rules for links with the
attribute. Something like:

a[rel~="nofollow"] {
background-color:yellow !important;
border:1px dashed red !important;

I would like to know... why is it important that a user knows whether a link is nofollow or not? ...does it really matter?
