Are there any plug-in's for Firefox x64 Namoroka????
Dear members of the mozilla support-forum,
since x64 OS's are more and more widely used, i thought it would be a good idea, to use a x64 version of firefox. I thought, the browser will run a bit faster than his smaller colleague for the x86 32Bit Version. Is this right?
But at the moment i think it is no good idea to use the x64 browser, because there are nearly NO plug-in's for it.
Or i am too dumb to find them.
I'm very disappointed and hope, anyone can "solace" me a bit.
Where the hell are all the x64 plug-ins? The browser without plug-ins is not very usable.
The lack of 64-bit plugins is the main reason Mozilla doesn't have a Firefox x64 release. The version of Namoroka you are using was compiled by a 3rd party builder, not by Mozilla.Read this answer in context 👍 6

Thank you soooo much!!!!
I understand now, that it really is no good idea to use Namoroka or Shiretoko. They are widely useless since no PlugIns availlable.
I will wait for the Mozilla Firefox x64 version instead and use the 32Bit version since then.
Thank you very much!
Namoroka (code name for Firefox 3.6 development versions) & Shiretoko (code name for Firefox 3.5 development versions) are names that apply to both Mozilla development pre-release versions, and to 3rd party builds - release or experimental. Unless you have a specific reason to use one of them it is generally best to use an official release version of Firefox.
Firefox 32-bit works fine on 64-bit OS's along with 32-bit plugins, so until 64-bit plugins are more widely available and Firefox comes up with a 64-bit release that is the way to go.
to develop 64-bit plug-ins, maybe we need an official 64-bit release of Firefox and make some publicity about it,...
There are currently some 64-bit plugins available for beta testers, along with pre-release builds of 64-bit Minefield (the Firefox development build line).
"Publicity" isn't needed, the developers of plugins like Flash, Java, etc. are in contact with the Mozilla developers, plus the beta testers file bug reports as necessary with the appropriate organization. There will be a 64-bit official build of Firefox available soon, but not necessarily at the same time Firefox 4.0 is released. It will probably be like the 2nd or 3rd quarter 2011.
