Thanks to Claus’s post over at Grand Stream Dreams, I was able to install the 64-Bit version of Firefox 4 Beta13pre for Windows. Been a while since I’ve been using the nightly builds, so this will take a little use to updating on a daily basis. One of the complications I have heard in regards to running a 64-Bit Browser on Windows is Adobe Flash does not yet support 64-Bit.
However, Adobe has a developmental version called Flash Player “Square “ which enables 64-bit support. A word of advise if you already have the 32-bit version of Flash installed, you will need to remove it first. So besides downloading the installer (select for all other browsers) then go down to the Uninstallation section and download the uninstaller as well. Then close Firefox and run the uninstaller and then the installer. The process should take at most a few minutes.
Now, getting back to Firefox. I noted above (and in this post title) is has been ‘labeled’ as Firefox 4 Beta 13pre. This does not necessarily mean that there is going to be a Beta 13, it could end up being relabeled as RC1pre. I’ll just have to watch this day-by-day and see what comes up. The Mozilla releases page still shows the next version as being Firefox 4 RC1, of course it does not reflect the new Firefox 3.6.15 released yesterday.
