I actually didn't know there was a Firefox x64 until I read this.

EDIT: By the way, is this the website where you can download Firefox x64 from: Firefoxownload - Mozilla x86-64?
64 bit has been around for sometime, but it's not officially released by Mozilla. That is the website where you get it.

The installer keeps trying to place the files in the Program Files (x86) folder by default. I can change it to Program Files, but I find it odd that a x64 program tries to install to a x86 folder by default.

In the first post, it said only 3.6.1 is supported, but the YouTube website only says this:
Supported Browsers

Right now we support browsers that support both the tag in HTML5 and the h.264 video codec. These include:
  • Google Chrome
  • Apple Safari (version 4+)
  • Microsoft Internet Explorer with Chrome Frame installed (Get Chrome Frame)

Thanks claw :)
