Is Firefox 11.0 for Windows 32-bit or 64-bit?

Posted

Is firefox 11.0 for windows 7 32-bit or 64-bit? If 64-bit - as it appears to be - is there anyway to either force it to run in 32-bit mode, or fall back to an earlier windows-compatible 32-bit version? Thanks.

More Information

Just got firefox Win update to version 11.0. Project I'm on uses SkyDrive to share docs. Only problem is you can't open a Word doc from a shared SkyDrive folder when the browser you're using to access SkyDrive is a 64-bit browser. Didn't know that and have been cheerfully accepting all updates automatically on new laptop. Now told to work on shared docs, but all browsers are 64-bit. Prefer to use Firefox if there's a way around this.

Firefox is a 32bit application. It can run on 64 bit windows, and the development team is currently working on a 64 bit version of Firefox. Are you having a specific issue with Firefox that is causing issues with x64 windows?

Thanks for your response, Tylerdowner. After more looking into it, I think my problem is with Word 2010, not the browser.

Seems that I must install 32 bit java to run java applets, would a 64 bit FF fix this problem?

In order to use a plugin like Java in Firefox, you will have to use a 32bit plugin with a 32bit Firefox. If you have a 64bit Firefox (not officially released yet BTW) you'd need a 64bit plugin.

I installed Waterfox 12, and it solved the problem I was having with lagging and freezing. That said, Waterfox makes available the 64-bit versions of the necessary plug ins needed on the same page that Waterfox is available and I've not had a single problem since installing them. Most Firefox extensions also work just fine - the transition from Firefox to Waterfox was seamless.

Is the Firefox 13.0 a 32-bit or 64-bit program? I'm using Windows 7 which I believe to be a 64-bit program.
