Chosen solution

Yes, you should be able to uninstall the x86 version. The 64-bit version of the browser does not depend on the other one.

Of course, make sure that you haven't been using the x86 version before uninstalling! You wouldn't want to loose your data.

Edit: The x86 version is very old. It is very unlikely that you have been using this.

Have a nice day!
