Improve vim emulation so that "ESC" actually works
Right now, there is a vim "mode" in the editor, which is great and all, but the single thing I would expect to work (pressing "ESC" to get out of Insert).... doesn't work. It seems to bubble up to the browser itself, which responds with the regular response when you're in an arbitrary text field in a browser page; it takes the cursor completely out of the editor (meaning your subsequent keystrokes are lost) instead of changing you to "NORMAL" mode.
Can this be fixed so that we can have at least semi-reliable vim emulation in the editor? Otherwise it's going to be difficult for me to use this for its intended purpose (i.e. actually coding in the browser). I don't really want to do any kind of text editing without vim keybindings if I can help it :)
ESC with Vim keybindings does not work for me. Using latest Firefox on OS X Catalina 10.15.7. Can't get back to NORMAL mode after INSERT. Too addicted to Vim to use anything less so Repl.It is currently unusable for me.
There is a way to get back into the editor though without having to reach for your mouse after hitting "esc". All you have to do is either "tab" then "shift-tab", or "shift-tab" then "tab".
I think everyone's misunderstanding his question. After using "esc" key to get back to normal mode, you have to use the mouse to click back into the editor screen. This is a bad user experience for vim users.
