I am not quite sure what you are asking. Are you asking the question: "How do I turn on 'popular highlights'"? If so, it is a visual filter (so found in the visual filter menu). NOTE: The feature only works if there actually are, "popular highlights" in the given resource.

It's also not available in Bibles.

There is a way of finding all the highlights in a resource.

 {Highlight *} in the search bar according to Wiki

It is not working for me, though I saw highlights in the resource.

Bob - Can you direct us to the specific wiki article? Can you provide some specific examples? By doing so, we can help diagnose/troubleshoot your issue.

It will find your own highlights, but not the "popular highlights" by others

Thanks Mick. 

Out of curiosity... I rarely use this feature... it has likely been years. I opened up the book referenced in this thread and found a popular highlight. The feature used to show how many people made that highlight, but I can't seem to get that info. Has FL eliminated that in L8?

Which wiki, Bob?

I have updated that wiki to clarify that it is your Highlights.

Thanx Dave. That means finding all Popular in a resource is not possible?

Not to my knowledge, but I think it would be a great idea to add a "Popular Highlights" tab to the resource sidebar. This would be a potentially great way to "skim" a resource to determine whether it merits a full read. Of course, as with the Notes & Highlights tab, I'd like to see the option to include varying degrees of context (like in-line search).

You can see some popular highlights at logos.com, e.g., for the resource NB.Mick showed: https://classic.logos.com/resources/LLS_ARMTHEOLBONHOEFFER/popularhighlights/bonhoeffer-for-armchair-theologians

(This is back on the classic site, but I believe it will eventually be available on the new site.)

Is that all of them for that resource? What about adding a tool for "popular highlights" within the desktop app? To be honest, I would use the feature more if presented in that fashion. I don't want to see the highlights "in-line," but wouldn't mind skimming through them.

Precisely! I hate seeing them mixed in with my own notes and have simply turned off that filter long ago. However, the aggregating tech obviously exists already and I'd love to see it leveraged as per my post above.
