is there a nightly 64-bit version of firefox for windows?

Posted

I know that you cannot compile a official stable version of 64 bit Windows because you mistakenly think it's enough with the unefficient 32bit version. But what I want to ask you is if there is a nightly version of 64 bit for windows, and if it exists, where can I get it, Zipped or installer (please, I would like binaries; I don't want to fight for hours with many configuration files, compiling process and so on).

PD: Please release a 64 bit version of firefox on Windows. What more do you want to postpone it? I saw a st*pid answer like «Yep :) Firefox works fine on both 32bit and 64 bit, so no need to worry :) », but this is NOT a solution. I have a 64bit OS, then, I would like to use full advantages and performance of this more modern platform rather than a less capable version. I dont have many GB of RAM and a multicore CPU as a decoration.

Win64 Nightly has existed for some time however they are not supported (like the Win32, Mac OSX 32/64-bit and Linux 32/64-bit are) as they are currently more for to catch breakage/regressions. https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Supported_build_configurations

No it is not simply because the 32-bit version works.

The 64-bit Windows builds has still been a work in progress on a number of things that needs to be in order, especially for Win64 Releases to happen.

For reading as Bugzilla is not a discussion forum like here.
Bug 471090 - (tracking_win64) [meta] Windows x64 build tracking bug
Bug 558448 - (support-win64) [Tracking bug] officially support Windows 64-bit builds
