Overall, could you have installed a Zip-build of Waterfox? It won't show as an installed program as the Zip-builds typically don't change an Windows Registry keys so that Windows woud "see" that program as being installed.

Beyond that, please see Waterfox for support for their web browser. It is not Firefox and this is a Firefox support forum.

It should. But some have reported issues with using 64-bit but had no problem when they installed 32-bit.

Yes as Win64 Firefox has existed for Releases since 42.0 which made Waterfox more pointless. Waterfox was Win64 builds made from source by the author before the code for Win64 was considerd stable for Release by Mozilla.
