It has been a long wait but Mozilla has finally released the 64-bit version of the its popular Firefox browser for Windows 7 and above operating systems. Here's what you need to know and how you can get it.
The Firefox browser for Windows has always been a 32-bit software and after years of developing and testing, Mozilla is now confident enough to release the 64-bit version that is more compatible with modern day processors.
The company has warned that there is limited support for plugins on Firefox 64-bit but this is by design:
[U]sers will notice that certain sites requiring plugins that worked in previous 32-bit versions of Firefox might not work in this 64-bit version. As we’ve shared previously, Mozilla intends to remove support for most NPAPI plugins in Firefox by the end of 2016.
You can download and install Firefox 64-bit for Windows on the Firefox All Systems website.
