Download Vimium-FF for Firefox. The Hacker’s Browser. Vimium provides keyboard shortcuts for navigation and control in the spirit of Vim. This is a port of the popular Chrome extension to Firefox. Most stuff works, but the port to Firefox remains a work in progress.

Very useful and pleasant to use. You almost don’t have to move your fingers out of the keyboard with this extension.

I’ve only tried Vim Vixen. Anyone know how the two compare?

Does Vim Vixen work on blank tabs (newtab)?

Tridactyl has an “escapehatch” option which lets you use a binding on any Firefox-protected page and it takes you to the closest non-protected tab. That way if you ever need to get back to Vim/command mode just use the binding and it’ll do the magic no matter what tab you’re on

Does Vimium? No extensions should work on the about:* pages…

No, it doesn’t. I asked because it’s a bit frustrating to try to close a tab or switch between them but it doesn’t work because it’s a newtab…

Yeah, it’s like that for security reasons. They block extensions from interacting with about:* pages, so that an extension can’t prevent you from uninstalling it or stuff like that.

A somewhat crappy workaround would be to set your newtab-page to a webpage, e.g. your search engine’s webpage or some local HTML-file.

Hmmm, not as far as I can tell.

I’ve been using Tridactyl lately and been really happy with how extensible and customizable it is. It even supports rc-like configuration if you install its native messenger!

Thanks, I removed Vimium and use Tridactyl now. It has a better interface, and an easier way to use the visual mode (for text selection).

This is the one! Been using it for around 5 months and due to its extensibility you can even run arbitrary JavaScript code, which has enabled me to replace Privacy Redirect with my own redirect script.

Same, I use this one too. I think I used to used vimium but switched to tridactyl a while back.
