Firefox QuickFind using /

Tabbed browsing was one of the main features that got me attracted to Firefox. Earlier I used Crazy Browser that works on top of IE for tabbed browsing. Soon enough IE7 brought the tabbed browsing feature.
Another feature that I really like about Firefox is the Find(Ctlr + f) feature that searches as you type the characters. One feature that I didn't know until lately was the QuickFind feature wherein you use the slash (/).Vim users will find this particularly useful! But the annoying part is that I tend to use 'n' instead of F3 to Find-next.
Firefox should support the 'n' for QuickFind just like vim and may be have an escape sequence for the conventional n !
