Yep, there is a 64-bit version - but only as a Nightly Build, of course. Some people also compile 64-bit Firefox on their own - I have used a version of that, but it wasn't compatible with most of the add-ons.

Only today I installed a version of Firefox called Namoroka which is 64bit compatible.
It looks the same and I've lost none of my settings or bookmarks.
So far, I've no hiccups and it is running a lot smoother and faster, altho its still slower than IE8

Namoroka is the code-name for Firefox 3.6, so that's the version of Firefox you're running. It's probably not an official build, or why would it be called Namoroka instead of Firefox 3.6?

Mozilla use the codenames for nightlies. Though the person above yourself is using an old build of Firefox 3.6 (as they are at 3.6.9) but I do not believe they themselves release a 64-bit build of 3.6. I

3.0 was codename Gran Paradiso
3.5 was codename Shiretoko
3.6 was codename Namoroka
4.0 has not yet been assigned a codename.

Just wanted to post my 2 cents. If there was support for 64-bit flash then a 64-bit browser would be in demand. Since no flash no need for 64-bit browser. I run Windows 7 Ultimate x64 and have found that on my system Chrome is by far the fastest browser followed by FF 4.0b4, Safari, Opera, FF 3.6 and then IE8. Although IE comes in native 64-bit it is pretty much useless without flash. I don't like the ads, but YouTube and other video sites all use flash. Here is Adobe's statement on their labs website about 64-bit flash:
Quote:
We are fully committed to bringing native 64-bit Flash Player for the desktop by providing native support for Windows, Macintosh, and Linux 64-bit platforms in an upcoming major release of Flash Player. We intend to provide more regular update information on our progress as we continue our work on 64-bit versions of Flash Player. Thank you for your continued help and support. Stay tuned to the Flash Player discussion forum for further announcements.
It looks like Linux may get it first for reasons I don't know, but hopefully soon we will be browsing in full 64-bit mode. 32-bit works good for now, but if you have a 64-bit system, a 64-bit browser will run better, faster and more stable than 32-bit(for the guys that asked why do we want a 64-bit browser).

Since all of you seem to be very passionate about a 64-bit browser and are scouring looking for an alternative 64-bit browser from the Mozilla website...could somebody answer my previous question and fill me on the benefits of using a 64-bit version of Firefox?

Slightly faster in quite a few web benchmarks. Only able to use 64 bit ActiveX controls if you're worried about security, as there's less ActiveX controls available. If you're not bothered about Flash then it's worth using a 64-bit browser.

Though once HTML5 properly takes off, there will be no point to 64-bit Flash.
