What you have is a pre-release(thunk version?), the link I gave is the last stable.

That compiler guy can be a bit slow getting the latest version out.

Its a crying shame there is no 64-bit flash.

I fail to see how the latest 64 bit build of 3.08 can labeled minefield.

Woo! Power to 32-bit!!
At least they have a x86 build (elsewhere)

Note: My computer isn't capable of x64 (xD)

This pretty much explains what versions should be labeled "minefield". Confusion over Firefox alpha/beta/preview builds code names • mozillaZine Forums

Can I run this with x86 Firefox installed without any issues? I would like to try it but don't want to get rid of what I currently have.

If I remember correctly (please don't quote me) but I had FFx86 installed and the x64 version installed fine, even adopted my FF settings. So, my answer is yes. I just hope it doesn't hose your settings. Let us know how it goes. For what it's worth, I'm currently using it with no problems.

Just backup your Firefox profile/settings before installing the x64 version. Go to,

C:\Users\Your Name\AppData\Local

and make a backup of the Mozilla folder. This will give you a copy of all profiles, settings and any extensions.
