Vimium on mac Rated 3 out of 5 stars

One of the most productive plugins in the ecosystem. Please fix the mac firefox hijacking issue because this would have been 5 starts otherwise.

To fix the hijacking of Command+F on Mac, change overlay.js:316 from

if(!active && !editable && && !e.ctrlKey) {


if(!active && !editable && && !e.ctrlKey && !e.metaKey) {


Hijack's command F on mac, can't search in page, no current way to submit issues Rated 2 out of 5 stars

The extension hijacks the cmd-f function on Mac, making it impossible to search in page. Also - there is no current project page, is all archive now, and you can't submit issues or problems.

Awesome Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Really enhances the browsing experience.
I can now browse Reddit without ever leaving my home row!

Exactly what i was looking for Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I was looking for a comfortable way to browse without a mouse and in youtube video saw someone using vimprobable2 and was looking for something behaving same way.
Vimium is exactly what i expected it to be, thank you!

Not ready for prime time Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This is a good start, but it feels like it's not finished.

I'm a little overwhelmed by Vimperator so I thought this would be a less intrusive / complex solution, but in fact this one is far too limited.

VimFX almost fits the bill - give it a try, but has no too few controls outside of page navigation (i.e. bookmarks, tools etc.)

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This is an old version of the addon which no longer functions correctly.
Use VIMFX instead.

Better than nothing, but is much more complete in Chrome. Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I really love this extension in the Chrome browser and would like to use it also in Firefox. But for Firefox she was abandoned by the developer. Has 1/10 of the shortcuts she's in Chrome.

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I like that someone is trying to mimic the features of the real Vimium in Firefox. It's missing some of my favorite hot keys like x/X (close tab/reopen last closed tab) and ? (display help overlay) from the original Chrome Vimium. If the developer continues to add these other features that make the real Vimium such a fantastic extention Vimium Firefox will only get better.

Gmail is more important for me than this addon. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

As others have said, if you use gmail, you can't use this addon.

Fix for Gmail Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I've made available a fix that disables Vimium for Firefox in Gmail.

Available here:

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Unfortunately this doesn't work with Gmail, because I cannot block the extension for that site, as my friend can in Chromium. I liked it for other sites, but it doesn't work like this.

如果能和Vimperator一样能用d关闭当前页面就好了 Rated 5 out of 5 stars


Not as good as the original vimium for Chrome Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I really wanted to like this extension, after switching back from Chrome to Firefox, and having used the excellent vimium extension on Chrome. Unfortunately, this version is a little unreliable. It can conflict with hotkeys in various sites. It can get activated on input fields when it shouldn't. It's also missing many of the simple keybindings from the Chrome version. I really want what this extension does, I just wish it did it better.

Poor Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Barely usable. With this extension it's not possible to compose any email in GMail if it contains "F" letter.

This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Not worth it Rated 1 out of 5 stars

While the idea is great, the execution is severely lacking.

1) There IS NO options menu. Meaning no way to tune anything.
2) No way to exclude domains, makes certain sites unusable, as other users have pointed out.
3) No hotkeys for switching between search engines in the search bar. As someone with between 20 and 30 different ones, this would be a vital feature.

All in all, this addon is not worth using and I cannot recommend it at all.

Needs Exclude List Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Wonderful addon, but really needs a manual exclude list so that the keybindings don't interfere with Gmail.

Nice, but it does not work on GMail Rated 3 out of 5 stars

You can't even type a reply in the new format without Vimium activating itself. In general, for the plugin to be useful, it should probably have a manual list of sites/URLs from where you want to exclude it from working. Have to disable Vimium for now, however...
