Windows 7: Firefox - x64 version new build

Firefox - x64 version new build

New version! - It is hard to write about Firefox briefly, and in this portal there is no point in writing about it long. The main point is that the 64-bit Firefox is now operational under 64-bit Windows and is being continuously worked on. The current version is called Minefield; we are looking forward to later versions.
Win64 build doesn't work on 32bit Windows even if you use processor that supports Intel EM64T or AMD64. If you want to use this, you have to install Windows x64 version (Windows XP Professional x64 Edition, Windows Server 2003 x64 Edition or Windows Vista x64).
The welcome screen of the 64-bit version is as usual:

Version 3.0 - Minefield


Version 3.5 - Shiretoko


Version 3.6 - Minefield


Firefox - 64bit software
  • Latest version: Firefox 3.0.10 (Minefield)
    • Version release date: 2009-05-09
  • Latest version: Firefox 3.5 RC2 (Shiretoko)
    • Version release date: 2009-06-20
  • Latest version: Firefox 3.6a1pre (Minefield)
    • Version release date: 2009-05-10

If you use Mr Techs toolkit addon you can make all your addons compatible

Nice, but Adobe still doesn't have a 64 bit Flash Player...
so back to FF 3.5 RC2...

Yep. It's a PITA

Otherwise minefield 3.0.10 feels a lot more responsive than it's x32 counterpart

I mean why the hell is ADOBE not focusing on this??? It can not possibly be that hard to make a 64bit Flash!! I mean there in NO reason to even make a 64bit Browser if flash isnt going to be supported!

There had better be a flsh64 before the Release date of 7!

This version was a very nice experience but unfortunately without flash is useless. Adobe sucks!

Well, even if it sucks now, we gotta give it support. Add-ons don't work for 64x right?

So that means I can install add block plus? Neat!
