Для тех кому Vimperator показался излишне навороченным. Лайтовая, мега-удобная версия. Must have!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.17.4).
Best vim-like add-on out there Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Writing this review after three months of extensive use, comparing Pentadactyl, Vimperator, VimFx and Vimium. This one is the fastest, its focus keys are centered around the home row, and most of its key bindings make the most sense when also using vim alongside. I'm especially thinking of Shift - (h, j, k, l), which are so useful. Thanks!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.17.4).
Excellent Alternative for Former Pentadactyl Users Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Just upgraded to Firefox 48, which broke my beloved Pentadactyl. However I've read good things about VimFX so decided to give it a try. Really excellent add-on. It doesn't try to be what Pentadactyl was (an all-singing all-dancing Vim clone), but so far I'm enjoying it! It's also nice that it seems to be actively maintained and goes through the add-on signing process (this is what broke Penta for me in v48).
Thanks for an excellent add-on - just made the suggested donation, really can't afford to go back to "normal" Firefox. :-)
Это еще круче Vimium Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Судя по статье на habrahabr это копия Vimium в Chrome. Но как только я установил VimFx, я влюбился. Даже думаю перейти на мозилу из за него. Это в 100 раз лучше оригинала. Особенно мне понравился режим выделения. Почему в Vimium не могли сделать так же?This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.17.4).

Mouseless Rated 5 out of 5 stars
The word "mouseless" needs to appear somewhere in this add-ons description. I was searching with that term and overlooked this gem. Came here after trying Vimium in Chrome and liking it a lot.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.17.4).

Makes my browsing 10x faster+easier. Small feature request. Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I cannot thank you enough for writing this add-on. I have been using this for 24 hours, and its already saving me time.
I have a feature request to make. Is it possible to make the hints go away by pressing the hint key again? I am finding myself in the habit of pressing the 'f' keys a lot of time, and then deciding I don't want to click/focus. I imagine there should be a lot of other people like me. At this point I have to hit escape to make the hints go away. It would have been a lot easier if I could press f again to exit hint mode. Since the hint mode isn't a standard feature in either firefox or vim, I guess this behavior won't conflict with any philosophy.
Thanks again for your hard work.
Awesome! save me a lot of time and pain Rated 5 out of 5 stars
My favorite app, I used a lot the mouse so my hand was little painful, with this app I can surf the web much faster and directly from the keyboard, THANKS FOR THIS GRATE APP!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.17.3).
Great addon, love it after 10 days' trial Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Two years ago I have tried Pentadactyl, but it is really hard for newbee to use especially when he doesn't know much code.
I just wonder how to write the code if I want to open a folder like "ProfD\iMacros"? I can open "ProfD" with a shortcut, but don't known how to directly goto the sub-folder "iMacros"
Thanks, if you know how plz tell me
New VimFx Caret mode suggestion Rated 5 out of 5 stars
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! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
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 Rated 5 out of 5 stars
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 Rated 5 out of 5 stars
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!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.13.0).
Used it for 3 minutes, enough to give 5 stars Rated 5 out of 5 stars
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.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.12.0).
Great addon Rated 5 out of 5 stars
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 Rated 5 out of 5 stars
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.
