Firefox 64-bit Web Browser for Windows Now Available

UPDATE 2017-08-14: 64-bit Firefox is now the default on 64-bit Windows.

On December 15, 2015 we released the 64-bit Firefox web browser for Windows 7 64-bit systems. This browser version offers gains in performance for Firefox users with 64-bit PCs. We’re pleased to offer it to users of Windows 7 and above who are looking for added performance for applications and games while running the Firefox web browser. This version offers improvements over the 32-bit version of Firefox.

Firefox 64-bit for Windows, by design, has limited support for plugins. Users 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. (Update – Mozilla removed support for NPAPI plugins when it shipped Firefox 52 on March 7, 2017)
