I take it back. I've just managed to get Mozex working with Vim on my
Windows2000 machine by following these instructions;
In particular, the part about creating a user.js file in your Firefox
profile folder to tell it where your temporary directory and editor
are located is important and what I had missed before. This should
work for other editors as well.
Zopeedit, by contrast, was abust for me. But that's probably just
stupidity or incompetence on my part. If anyone gets it working with
Firefox could you post detailed instructions?
Thanks and regards,
