New VimFx Caret mode suggestion Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas
Hello as continuously stated by the other reviewers I have to agree this is probably the best addon ever made for Firefox, and I have just noticed VimFx has added Caret mode! thank you very much for this! the best addon is now feature perfect!
But I would like to ask for something: could you please extent VimFx Caret mode to the Browser Address Bar? could it be possible to select and edit the URL text? or at the very least navigate it with vim-like motions like h, l, w, b...
I know you say in the GitHub addon homepage:
"Working with text selection in webpages using code is a terrible mess full of hacks. New commands will only be added if they really are worth it."
And I believe you, but in my humble opinion extending the caret mode to the URL bar is useful enough to justify the headache, even a "go to select/insert mode where you last left it" support feature similar to vim "gi" command would be really helpful.
Please, pretty please consider this suggestion it would be beyond awesome!

Unfortunately it's not possible to reply directly to comments so I'm posting another review as a workaround.

First off, even if this were the case, the comparison isn't really helpful. Both Vimperator and Pterodactyl provide much more functionality. This means they change Firefox's entire user interaction scheme fundamentally and also visually. They also take standard keyboard shortcuts (or "bindings" as Vim veterans prefer to call them) and give them new meanings. For users who have the standard keyboard shortcuts in their "muscle memory", this can be a nuisance. (To be sure, it's possible to change them, but considering the complexity, this is a tedious process.) It also turns out to be burdensome for users who sometimes work on other people's computers that don't have Vimperator or Pterodactyl on them.
By contrast, VimFx lets you do much less with the keyboard, but on the other hand it leaves Firefox's existing user interface, both the look and the keyboard shortcuts, entirely unchanged. Firefox will look familiar and can still be used with the same old shortcuts. Therefore Vimp/Ptero on the one hand and VimFx on the other hand appeal to quite different groups of users.
Secondly, I never experienced any noticeable delay in generating shortcuts with VimFx. I just tried again, and if Vimp/Ptero really are any faster, then this has no bearing whatsoever on my user experience. If your experience is different, then this probably has to do with other factors that may slow it down.
On a different note, for all the improvements that VimFx has had with recent add-ons, one thing is still missing. It would be more than nice to have the option to export/import the settings to/from a file - a function that many other extensions with complex settings provide.
And another thing: It's great that you can now bring up the tab history with a keyboard shortcut. However, it's inconsistent that it's not possible to go up/down in this list with h/j - instead you have to move your fingers from the homerow to the cursor keys. It would be great if support for h/j within the tab history can be added in a future version.
Faster please! Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas
Awesome addon for firefox！Thanks for your effort.But if faster when generate hints it will be perfect.
I've compared this extension between vimperator and pentadactyl,this one is slower when generating hints than pentadacryl and vimperator.
Though vimum in google chrome is much faster than all above :)
Very Good Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas
And you should install it and check out the documentation (go into your vimfx options, the link is there).
Type i to temporarily disable vimfx.
Type x to close a tab. X to reopen it.
Use it and Love it immediately Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas
Awesome addon. I love it though I just start. From interface to working performance is great. I used pentadactyl, getting familiar with keys of VimFx. So nice!Esta valoración es de una versión anterior del complemento (0.13.0).
Used it for 3 minutes, enough to give 5 stars Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas
Really wish I had found this sooner. The default shortcuts are really comfortable but if any of them get in your way (for example, I don't want to scroll with space bar since i use it to play/pause yt videos) you can easily change them from the addon options.Esta valoración es de una versión anterior del complemento (0.12.0).
Great addon Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas
Great addon. I use it on all my machines. Only issue: I switched from 38.7.0 ESR to 45.0 ESR yesterday and it seems to be broken. Switching bach to old ESR because I really can't live without the keyboard shortcuts any more. ;-)
Edit: I deleted my Firefox profile and reinstalled the addon. Works perfect now!
Life Changing, exactly what I was looking for Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas
I saw Vimperator in the past, and while I would have loved to have Vim-like functionality in Firefox, I loathed how much it changed Firefox, and the amount of feature-creep it contained.
This... this is perfect. Doesn't change Firefox, and I have amazingly useful keybindings. Seriously, the functionality you provided is great. I have yet to find something I have an issue with.

Efficient and Easy for Vi’s User Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas
My favourite Firefox’s add-on. Easier to use than vimperator, thanks to intelligent built-in config. Well integrated. A pleasure to use on a daily basis.Esta valoración es de una versión anterior del complemento (0.12.0).
Please add a whitelist Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas
This is really a great addon. For good reason I open pages in ignore mode by default ('*' in blacklist). Therefore, I would appreciate two more features. 1) A whitelist. 2) On option which allows to stay in normal mode when following a link in a tab that is in normal mode.Esta valoración es de una versión anterior del complemento (0.12.0).
Perfect for vi fans and people who just want to navigate quickly Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas
Really love this add-on. It doesn't get in the way and it really helps you to navigate *quickly* from the keyboard. You can turn it off temporarily (when using GMAIL, for example) with a single keystroke. Brilliant..Esta valoración es de una versión anterior del complemento (0.12.0).

Most like Vimium on Chrome Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas
I used Vimium on Chrome for a very long time. Recently I moved to Firefox and was disappointed by the Vimium app. Vimperator seemed like overkill (I love vim, but I really just need to browse). I was very happy to find VimFx which is more or less exactly like Vimium on Chrome.Esta valoración es de una versión anterior del complemento (0.11.0).
