    I have windows 7 with 64 bit os. I also use firefox. How can I tell if the firefox I use is 64 or 32 bit? I want to use 64, do you know if that's possible?
    Thanks

    Most 64 bit software on a 64 bit OS will install itself into 'C:\Program files' while 32-bit software will install in 'C:\Program files (x86)'.
    Also, if you load up Task Manager, and run Firefox, under the Processes tab, it will show an entry 'firefox.exe *32' which means its a 32 bit application. So, firefox is mainly a 32 bit application that can run under 32 and 64 bit OS'.
