Can I uninstall 32 bit version without affecting 64 bit version?

Posted

Somehow along the way I ended up with an old 32-bit version of Firefox still installed along with the 64-bit version that I am using. I want to uninstall the 32-bit version. Is there any cross-fertilization between the two? Am I going to screw up my 64-bit Firefox by removing the old version?

Thanks.

You should no uninstall as this could remove Windows Registry settings. This would be the best way,


Using your file browser, open the Programs Folder on your computer. Locate the 32-bit program.

Windows: C:\Program Files C:\Program Files (x86) Note: Check Both Folders ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Look for, and remove any Mozilla or Firefox program folders. Do not remove the Mozilla Thunderbird folder if there is one.

Do Not remove any profile folders.

After rebooting the computer, run a registry scanner if you have one. Then run the installer. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++ If there is a problem, start your Computer in safe mode and try again.
