"Want to use your favorite text editor to write text for online applications? Check out It's All Text!

"This add-on allows you to edit text from any "textarea" on a Web page in an external editor. Once it's installed, you can configure the extension to use whatever your favorite editor happens to be. In my case Vim (GVIM, in this case), but you could also use Gedit, Kate, or any other editor that you prefer.
