Windows 7: Windows 7 to Get 64-bit (x64) Firefox

For some reason, I'm getting a very odd feeling that Adobe will make us pay them to use x64 Flash. If this happens, I will boycott ANY AND ALL Adobe products (I'm actually very tempted to do so now to send them a message to get off their butts and make x64 Flash).

Can't you get 64-bit flash in Linux?

Even Adobe isn't stupid enough to charge for a 64-bit version of Flash for Windows.

Agree with Airbot. I've got a x64 FF installed but I rarely use it cos there's no flash. I've seen a link somewhere to contact Adobe and request a x64 flash player but I can't find it now.
Apparently Adobe are saying "no demand"!

As (i believe) Steve Jobs said about silverlight "We won't release a X64 silverlight because nobody uses X64 browsers" when in fact, we use X86 browsers precisely BECAUSE there is no X64 flash/silverlight

I think you mean Steve Ballmer.

Apologies to Martin, but that is kinda funny.

When Adobe charges $300 for an entry level version of Adobe Acrobat, you would think there would be just a tiny little bit of profit left over from that ridiculously outrageous sticker price to put into some development on a 64 bit Flash.

Oh heck, where's my head at? They've got problems in their x86 Flash product they won't fix.

Sorry, sorry, lost my mind for a minute there. I'm living in a dream world again. Back to reality... Move along...

I wonder how much of the 64-Bit Flash thing is due to competition between Microsoft and Adobe. Maybe it's just Adobe's way of showing Microsoft that they hold enough power to affect the products Microsoft sells. Put another way, as many have pointed out, the lack of a 64-Bit Flash version for Windows seriously affects our choice in browsers.

Another answer might truly be the lack of deep support for 64-Bit computing in general. We are more tech savvy here and tend to be early adopters. I know that as soon as 64-Bit CPUs were available I wanted one and as soon as I had one I wanted a 64-Bit OS to run on it. Maybe the rest of the world just really doesn't care all that much...

theres absolutely no performance improvement in just using a x64 browser, its not even x64 optimised, so the point of wasting time with bothering to migrate to an x64 browser is Zilch and below any point of reasonable necessity.
