I'm trying to remap the default Vimperator find on page key "/" to "\f" but without luck.

I've tried this command:

:nmap \f /

but it doesn't work. And a Google search didn't bring any good result. How could I possible do that? I don't think that this Find bar is JS because I can't inspect it as the default FF find bar.

You just need to escape the backslash.

nmap \\f /

Mind you, it's generally better to use nnoremap:

nnoremap \\f /

This ensures the binding won't be broken if you ever redefine /.
