How can I set Firefix to always start in 32-bit mode?

Running FF 4.0.1 on OS X 10.6.7. Apparently defaults to start 64-bit mode. This doesn't work with an extension needed for Netflix streaming, requiring restart in 32-bit mode. How can I set FF to start in 32-bit mode in the first place? (And what would I miss out on if I did that?)

Other users should note that Firefox has public release versions of 64bit only for Mac And Linux; not for Windows, yet.
