firefox 43.0 -- is it x64?

Posted

I just now installed 43.0, and when I click on "about", it doesn't tell me whether I installed x64 or not. how can I tell?

hi shmu26, the browser you've used to post this question was 64bit firefox, so yes it appears to be working :-) you can recognise it from the bold part in the user agent:

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:43.0)...

The Win64 is a more clear indicator for most.

If you were using 32-bit Firefox on 64-bit Windows then it would look like Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:43.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/43.0

As WOW64 means it is a 32-bit app on 64-bit. Windows.

I was wondering the same thing too.

This thread provides no help at all, as I have no idea what the 'user agent' is or how to access it to find out.

Maybe a more helpful explanation is required.
