I've tried using the following:

:map j 3j

When I do this and reload the .vimperatorrc file, it actually starts zooming in the page I'm on. The funny thing is, if I type 3j on a page without any mapping, it works. I'm using Vimperator 2.3.1 with Firefox 3.6.3.

Am I missing something?

Nevermind, figured it out:

:noremap j 3j
:noremap k 3k

This is controlled by the scroll variable:

set scroll=3

Incorrect. 'scroll' sets the number of lines to scroll with <C-u> and <C-d> commands, not j and k. – Tim M Jun 22 at 22:39
