    ... as i am using massive tabs (1000+)
    i didnt really see big different in memory usage nor performance increase
    Wow! I'm curious, what could you possibly need 1000+ tabs for? I can't even imagine a scenario where it would be advantageous to open that many tabs.

    It would seem to me that if such a issue existed it would leave just about every computer that uses a 64bit OS vulnerability. And I for one find it hard to believe that MS would let such an issue get out in the wild. Also, I would like to see more than one source to verify those claims.
    Here is some new information that I found interesting:

    just bad habit of mine
    i tends to leave the tabs open for time being for things that i want to look-back but not important enough to be added to bookmark
    those like forums threads, streaming sites, stocks prices

    i dont think that i have 1000+tabs open, but rather how firefox count the tab
    firefox seems to count each page = 1 tab, so like you visit google then visit a site in a tab = 2 tab rather than 1

    It's a blog and I take information from them with a grain of salt. If you can find an MS source then I would give it a lot more credibility.

    I downloaded the Firefox 64-bit browser last night. I've been using it almost all day today and it has been working very good. I've noticed right away after installing it seemed snappier and loads pages faster compared to the 32-bit version. No crashes so far and even the Flash (Always activated) worked without crashing too! :)

    I'll say one thing for the 42 version. When going to open it up I first have to close any Waterfox browser windows already open first! Waterfox proceeded this by about a few years already having been developed outside of Mozilla. Cyberfox another variant offers more features and options when reviewing the settings while Waterfox has been the stable platform Mozilla is taking off with this one.. When clicking on the FF 42 icon you simply end up seeing "Firefox is already running close all tabs".

    x64 is not indicated anywhere except for the About: page and the entry in Uninstall apps, which is weird. You could tell immediately by how add-ons that interact with programs on your computer don't work, though. At least Kaspersky refuses to run.

    If you go to Mozilla and not simply download the 64bit linked off the article's page you will run into the web installer that goes by the flavor of Windows you are running. For the 32bit flavor of the latest you can go to Mozilla Firefox 42.0 PL - 32-bit Download

    There you will find the dropdown list that includes a few options including the 64bit flavor of 43.0 Beta now available to try out.

    Oh, I meant that within the program, it looks almost identical to 32-bit Firefox, except for the user-string, about: page and uninstaller name.

    I see Trusteer's Rapport is only available for the 32bit version of Firefox, which makes going to 64bit a non-runner. Which is a pity...
