Firefox – External editor support in vimfx+firefox


In vimperator, I can use Ctrl+I to edit text input in vim. Is there any equivalent in vimfx plugin for firefox? I like the simpler interface vimfx provides but without external editor support, I find it lacking a very important feature I use daily from vimperator.

  • VimFX itself does not have this feature but you can always install It's All Text! that does exactly that.

    After the installation you only need to configure the editor (gvim) and the shortcut. I found CTRLI too overloaded, so I opted for ALTI.
