I’ve been looking for a 64bit Firefox for a couple of years now, pretty much since Java and Flash player became available in 64bit. Mozilla seem in no hurry to progress the minefield nightlies into a full release, but several third parties have taken the open source code and compiled it for 64bit. I’ve looked at several of these and the best supported and most regularly updated seems to be a build called Pale Moon.
I’ve been using Pale Moon for several weeks now and have found that it works just as well as Firefox did. It is also fully compatible with all of the plugins and addins that I use for Firefox. Unlike most other 3rd party builds of Firefox it doesn’t share a profile with Firefox, so you can keep Firefox alongside without mixing profiles. For anyone looking for a 64bit version of firefox I can highly recommend it.
