To highlight the fill on the track upto the handle position of the slider, add data-highlight = "true" attribute.

<!DOCTYPE html>
      <title>Slider Highlight</title>
      <meta name = "viewport" content = "width = device-width, initial-scale = 1">
      <link rel = "stylesheet" href = "https://code.jquery.com/mobile/1.4.5/jquery.mobile-1.4.5.min.css">
      <script src = "https://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.11.3.min.js"></script>
      <script src = "https://code.jquery.com/mobile/1.4.5/jquery.mobile-1.4.5.min.js"></script>

         <label for = "slider1">Slider:</label>
         <input type = "range" name = "slider1" id = "slider1" data-highlight = "true" 
            min = "0" max = "100" value = "60">
