                    on all three of
                  Stack Overflow,
                 Server Fault and

         I was also the first user to

comment How can I search within the output buffer of a tmux shell?
@DanielQue: Take a look at the tmux man page and search for "mode-keys" and "status-keys". Those are sub-commands that allow you to set the binding style. Alternately, it might be simpler to set an environment variable (EDITOR or VISUAL) to the style you want before starting tmux.
