Here is the link to the x64 hourlies. (they're not quite hourlies)
These builds are compiled every hour and contain the latest fixes/features but they might be buggy

Thanks, Yowanvista, but I'll stick with the nightlies. I like being on the cutting edge, even the bleeding edge, but I think I'll stay out of the tinderbox for now.

By the way, for those who don't already know, I found this nifty little link: http://www.computerworld.com/s/article/9020880/Hacking_Firefox_The_secrets_of_about_config

Does anyone know if the "prefs.js" file from 32 bit FF can simply be copied to the 64 bit version to maintain all of your tweaks and settings?

First you highlight (single click) the option to be changed then right click on the true/false and choose "Toggle"

Toggling the option also crashes Minefield. I'll do what mikedl suggested and see if I can get it to work.

RE: ADDONS

There is a about:config edit the stops the verify so you can run all your addons. I have been using it forever. Just google it.

Did you ever find anything out about this over on Bugzilla or MozillaZine? Interested.

So at this point in time which version are you guys recommending as the most stable for running 64 bit flash?

Still the third one down on this link?

Yes third one down, you may want to change the update options to "ask me what I want to do" in the options menu otherwise it will just update back to the current problem. You can always change it back later or manually update under help -> about minefield.

Or change javascript.options.tracejit.content in the about:config to false which is also working with the current release.

Great!... that was the concise answer I was looking for.... the config mod sounds easy enough too.... too cool!... thanks!

Did you manually go through and redo all your config settings for X64 or did you just paste your old 32bit prefs.js file to the X64bit version?
