    So far so good with Firefox 64 bit. All extensions and plugins for the 32 bit version work. I firs uninstalled the 32 bit version but that does not delete my bookmarks, plugins, extensions or preferences. I got it for this Mozilla site:

    Thanks for the tip on the 64 Bit version. Wouldn't have known anything about it if I hadn't read it here.

    Yeah, so far Mozilla has been doing an outstanding job in hiding it

    Run it and take a look at the task in task manager. 32 bit programs got a "(32 bit)" remark. If there is no such remark it's a 64 bit program.
    Thank-you for that info, Altae. I ran Firefox after accepting the update to version 42.0. The task manager says that it's still a "32-bit" browser. Maybe the Mozilla programmers feel that the 64-bit version isn't stable enough yet? Usually, servers (or something) sense that you're running a 64-bit O.S. and install the appropriate version of a program.

    If you had the 32 bit version installed, it won't install the 64 bit version.
    Go to the link in the OP and D/L the 64 bit version.

    Here's what looks like the official download page and what I think is the home of the 64 Bit Mozilla browsers:

    Waterfox uses 1024 MB of RAM while idle. I hope this is different.
