  • Any advantage to using the Firefox 64-bit version?

    The 32-bit version runs fine on my W8.1 machine, but just curious.

    I run Pale Moon x64 which is based on an older and less bloated Firefox and I can have so many tabs open that I can't read the titles of any of them.

    I imagine 64 bit allows the use of more instruction code for page rendering and more system ram without paging to disk which is important nowadays as each page/tab is so full of pictures and content coming from several third party sources. However, it still takes only one tab with video and Adobe having a conniption to crash them all.
