This add-on is great for emacs user!
However, it is not compatible after firefox 57.0. Is there any upgrade coming up?
Excellent Addon for Emacs users.
I miss it with the new and bad WebExtensions which killed so many Addons -.-
I fear this Addon might not survive too :-(
Very good add-on for Emacs users. I was using it till Firefox 57.
Waiting to see an update.
Please, for the love of emacs, migrate to firefox 57
I love this extension! Has always worked well for me.
I'm so sad the latest version isn't compatible with firefox 57. I for one would love to see it rebuilt for 57.
Thanks for writing this plugin: very useful for emacs user!
Are there any plans porting it to webextentions so that it will still work with newer versions of Firefox? I would be really sad if I needed to say it goodbye.
I've been using Emacs for few weeks, and this addon is extremely handy for Emacs users.
No drawback for the moment :-)
I am new to Ubuntu, prefer Chromium.
However, could not get Emacs keybinding to work with mail, etc.
With this, no problem with Firefox. I had to delete the entry for Ctrl-v, so cut and paste worked as I expect, that was it.
1. you cannot set firemacs enable=off to be the default initial state after firefox browser restart, or even enable="whatever state was last used".
2. when you click on the firemacs icon or use the menu to disable it, the enable=off setting is applied only to the current window and tabs, rather than ALL existing windows and tabs. I think the latter would be much preferable, or at least should be an option.
Overall, this add-on is awesome for Emacs users. I didn't find a better one.
But some little bugs remind when you customize your keybindings. But we can overcome quite easily the problem with some other keybindings.
So 5/5 !
Thanks you very much Kazu Yamamoto !
First of all: THIS IS SO COOL!
However, there is a problem: There are 3 ways to use Meta, even if you don't have a meta key on the keyboard. Unfortunately, 2 of them are hard to use and alt doesn't work if you use Ubuntu because it's used by Unity's cool stuff. If AltGr was available as a meta replacement, that'd be great.
The plugin is great on it's own but I was looking for a VimFX replacement and I just can't figure out if Firemacs has a 'click from keyboard' functionality (like f key in vim emulators). That is a fundamental feature for me.
This add-on works very well with few bugs.
The functions that are added by this plug-in have been missing in my life since the time I first used NSCA Mosaic back in 1993.
Emacs key-bindings are imprinted in the nerves of my fingers, as I used them more or less every day for more than 25 years.
This is the single best Firefox add-on ever made. If I had to choose between having access to all other add-ons or only firemacs I would chose firemacs and still be very happy.
This is a great extension, and it really feels like emacs as others have mentioned. Even C-SPC and C-x h work just like in emacs! The only downsides are:
- shift+arrow keys or keys like C-B (ctrl+shift+b), don't select text.
- no C-x C-x functionality (this is probably harder to implement so I don't really fault this extension for not having it).
Other than those and a few other very minor things, this is a great extension and I highly recommend it.
Une excellente extension pour les utilisateurs d'emacs, elle permet de gagner un temps fou !
All my life I've been instinctively typing Emacs commands into Firefox just to realize once again that FF is not Emacs.
My dream comes true :)
A thing of beauty is a joy forever!
Has brought an immense amount of joy to my life
I'm very happy with it.
Thanks for sharing.
This plugin is stupendous. It turns the Firefox UI from crap to highly usable for me. I sincerely hope the developer keeps bringing this up to date with new Firefox releases, and I would gladly contribute financially were a way to do so provided.
Very nice! I love it...
Emacs users can easily use their emacs' "hands on keyboard" configuration on Firefox... GREAT!
very nice addon!!!!!let me out of mouse.
This is a wonderful addon. There is a single (and very frustrating) issue that I've had with it since downloading. When I set the mark for selection, there is no way to unset or move the mark. What really attracts me to emacs's keybindings is the lack of any sort of dependency on the mouse. I love this addon, but please relieve me of dependency on the mouse for text selection.
Not a review, but a question: is there any doc of ANY kind for firemacs? Like what keys do what. Options. Rebinding keys (I notice people (in reviews) have done that or similar. WHERE is the doc. And if none, how did YOU figure out the features? THANKS!
Works flawlessly. The configuration options suffice. Thanks a lot.
