Windows 7: Firefox 64bit

11 Nov 2011   #1

Windows 7 Pro 64bit build 7601 SP1
Firefox 64bit

Anyone else running the Firefox 64bit Nightly? Have you noticed it seems more stable than the 32 bit version? Or is it because I have much less plugins running on the 64bit vs my 32bit? As far as the 32bit firefox plugins go it's just noscripts, adblock, calandar, tab utilities, colorful tabs, Norton toolbar(but I don't have it enabled), and couple more I can't remember off the top of my head since I'm currently in the 64bit v and it won't let me run both concurrently. Just curious as I'm not really having any real issues. The latest 32 bit build seems to have fixed it for the most part.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64Bits SP1

I have been using Nightly since 7.0a1 (Currently running 11.0a1). All of them have been very stable for me.

As for add-ons, I only use three (3); Adblock Plus, Flagfox and WOT. For every daily update I edit the "application.ini" file and change the "Vendor=Mozilla Name=Firefox Version=11.0a1" to 8.0a1 and the "MinVersion=11.0a1" to 8.0a1 in order to trick the add-ons to work. So far no problem.

Also, before each update, I have to change these values back to normal so it can perform the Nightly update successfully. A little extra work but nothing big IMHO.

Rarely use the 32 bit version.

64bit Firefox and IE8
I was playing around with both FF and IE8 64bit and I didn't realize so many websites rely on Flash. It was like the internet was broken. I observed on my machine that the 64bit IE8 runs faster and smoother than the 64bit FF. But FF & IE8 32bit run about the same speed. I also noticed that the...
