It's normally disabled unless you use :screen. The state is saved in vifminfo file if 'vifminfo' option contains "state", so even if you enabled it, you can then disable and it should stay as such (however if you started multiple instances, the order in which you close them is important to the outcome).

If you want to be sure it's always off, you can use this workaround in vifmrc:


The first line enables the integration and the second one toggles it, which results in always disabling it.


Thanks alot !!!
