Thanks, guys, but I'm aware of most of those already.

I haven't tried sending text areas to Emacs yet, but it doesn't really help with the difference between keybindings when I need to do a quick action, like cut a piece of text from the built-in search form, which is exactly when I tend to press the wrong keys the most.

Changing Firefox keys to Emacs's is not optimal, too, because I close tabs much more often than cut text, so giving up "C-w" for that in favor of C-x k (which requires two hands to press) is counter-productive. It would also make using any other software more jarring.

Maybe I need to man up and switch to something like ErgoEmacs.
