Start64!64-bit builds of Firefox were released by Mozilla in conjunction with 32-bit builds for nearly two years for the Windows platform. Mozilla about a month ago announced a change that stopped the creation and development of 64-bit Windows builds of Firefox in favor of concentrating resources on 32-bit builds and other projects.

A couple of reasons where given for that move, from missing or incomplete plugin support for 64-bit versions of Firefox to the builds being slower than 32-bit versions of the browser.
