Yes I am agree, I think it's the best solution

Yeah, Alex knows about it, but there's issues with compiling 15.0.1 as mentioned on the previous page.

Finally, a 64bit version of firefox that actually works.

Minefield was a disaster. Virtually nothing worked. This works perfectly. In fact I've gotten rid of firefox.

Add to that, Opera has also released a superb 64 bit version. I've kept the 32 bit version for now, but that'll be going too.

Both go to prove that 32 bit is dead. Almost every remark (on other sites) have stated that a 64 bit browser is pointless. These two prove the opposite: They out perform their 32 bit versions, not just in benchmarks, but in the real world - you can see the difference in performance during screen rendering times.

Now to persuade LibreOffice and WinAmp to release Win 64 bit versions...

Considering Minefield was a nightly build, I'd think it'd be prone to breakage. tongue.gif

I rather Google and Apple release 64-bit versions of Chrome and iTunes. biggrin.gif

So I have been play BF3 and I have to switch back to Firefox 32 bit for the web browser to work. Is this cause of the way EA wrote there webpage or can something be done on the waterfox side? Kinda dislike having to close out WF to open FF to get my game to work.

This EA problem. They haven't made a 64bit program yet.

It's EA/DICE's doing, as they haven't (and/or they won't) release a 64-bit Battlelog plugin.

Thread Starter 

There's a way to have a 32-Bit plugin container with a 64-Bit browser as defined here:

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=595053

 

But I don't know how stable it is etc. I'll probably release a test build in the future.

 

Or you can download Firefox 4 Beta 12 to see what it's like:

Does anyone else have an issue when closing down WF15 that it doesn't actually close down the main exe?

I leave one of my machines logged in and locked every night after closing all my apps down, and most times when I come back in the morning, running WF again causes the pop up that it's already running. I check in task manager and the waterfox.exe process is still there, hogging 900MB+

I've had that happen with vanilla 32-bit FF, but way back in the pre-4.0 days. Are you running any plugins or addons that might be hanging and not ending correctly?
