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:

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.

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...

Very good extension. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Very good extension.
Should have an ignore list.

OS X: Good for keyboard nav, conflicts with Cmd-F Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I'm trying Vimium after trying Vimperator for a day. With both, I'm seeking to add more keyboard navigation to my browsing experience.

The downfall of Vimperator was that it conflicted too much with the default keyboard nav buttons, in particular with GMail. Vimium does a better job, but I already have Cmd-f (and ctrl-f on PCs) memory-mapped. Hitting Cmd-f with Vimium activates the highlight-link mode.

There doesn't appear to be a way to change the configuration of Vimium to use a different key for this otherwise useful feature.

nice Rated 4 out of 5 stars

nice addon.
but default scroll step size with j,k key is small for me.
how can i change this size?

Great but room for improvement. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great addon, offers the keyboard functionality of the vim, without sacrificing firefox own keyboard shortcuts, like ctrl+t etc.

Only one suggestion: firefox's option "search for text when I start typing" doesn't work together with vimium. The reason is that the hot key if the "f". Is it possible to change the default key from "f" to "space" so I keep the option "search for text when I start typing" enabled?

Added x,s,d keybind Rated 4 out of 5 stars

'x': function() { gBrowser.removeTab(gBrowser.mCurrentTab); },
'd': function() { gBrowser.contentDocument.defaultView.scrollBy(0,400); },
's': function() { gBrowser.contentDocument.defaultView.scrollBy(0,-400); },

Added x,s,d keybind

Escape Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This extension is very usefull, but it could be better with an binding in more :
Esc - deselect link, textarea, etc (to can others bindings)

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It is not Pentadactyl or even Vimperator, but it is quite simple useful and intuitive. If those break between Firefox versions due to their higher degree of complexity, Vimium will keep up offering partial mouseless navigation thanks to Firefox's XUL UI flexibility. Big thanks to the author for porting this add-on!
