Currently running Firefox 3.5.13 on laptop using Windows XP pro sp3 and will want to move my bookmarks to a new laptop. New laptop uses Win 7 pro 64-bit OS. I have read too many conflicting reports about Firefox and Win 7 and understand that Firefox is working on a true 64-bit version. What are my choices for a stable web browser for new laptop and which particular version of Firefox is recommended and the pros and cons of that suggestion? (I believe one can run Firefox 32 bit version in the 64 bit environment, but is that the best choice?) I have not installed Firefox on new laptop yet and am eager to dump IE. This is being posted from my old laptop. Thanks ...

Mozilla are working on a 64 bit version of Firefox but it is some way off. Currently the only release versions are 32 bit, and the next major version will also be only 32 bit.

I recommend installing the latest release version (3.6.10) available from http://www.mozilla.com/

To copy the bookmarks, follow the procedure in the Restore bookmarks from backup or move them to another computer article to back them up to a json file, which you can import (restore) on the new laptop. You can copy more than bookmarks, for details see Back up and restore information in Firefox profiles and Profile backup - MozillaZine Knowledge Base. The last link includes details of a third party utility that can make the process easier.

ToneE, thx for the excellent clarification. Unfortunately I read too many things and got confused. 32-bit for now, OK.

If you go to this link you will be assured by Microsoft and Win7 "new" app checking and making sure that all drivers and software you have is compatible with Win7 64 bit. And in this article it states that Firefox version 3 IS compatible and designed for 64 bit OS, hm mm well as you know that is incorrect!! As of today Mozilla Firefox is not designed for a 64 bit computer. Thank you for your honesty and it saved me a big headache By being upnt and honest. my books!! Great job!!

From OP I am have been using Firefox 3.6.11 for about a week and it continues to be a wonderful browser on my new laptop. While it is not designed as a 64-bit browser (see post above) it works totally fine in Windows 7 64-bit environment.
