    Unhappy Firefox 4 not to support 64-bit Windows

    The next major iteration of Mozilla’s open source browser Firefox 4.0. will support 32-bit (x86) platforms exclusively. It will not support 64-bit.

    Check out Firefox 4: list of supported platforms - mozilla.dev.planning | Google Groups



    A pity

    Until flash supports 64bit computing, 64bit browsers are as useful as an iPad. (This is my personal opinion)

    We are moving ahead in technology but we are still far away to get utilize the power of 64bit application on 64bit CPU.
    It doesn't matter Mozilla is dropping 64bit idea for upcoming FF4, because there are no 64bit BHOs/plugins/addons available... Just like Adobe Flash Player.

    Operating Systems are generally backward compatible for the sake of software designed for 32 bit systems AFAIK.
