I use Vimperator, a Firefox plugin which adds vi key bindings to my browser. I have problems with the WYSIWYG editor for the Trilogy sites. When I use ^I in the textbox in gVim I get *emphasized text*. This is presumably because Vimperator and the WYSIWYG editor both want to bind on ^I, and I assume that for a brief time the *emphasized text* is printed to the textbox buffer, which Vimperator picks up.

Is there any way I can stop the WYSIWYG editor from binding to any keystrokes, or prevent it from changing the contents of my textbox at all?

event that vimperator is the probem, just stop using vimperator and let the stackoverflow team get on with something of more value to the 99.9% of the users that don't need to do a 12 step VI admit program. – Ian Ringrose Dec 16 '09 at 8:05
It should be possible to disable the use of this plugin for particular sites -- if not, that feature really needs to be added. – Ether Dec 16 '09 at 16:00

We disable the WMD preview for smartphones, so you can, if you change your User-Agent to iphone; ipad; or android n.n;
