What are you talking about ? Mozilla completed work on Firefox 64bit several months ago and is it now fully supported version across all channels and languages including stable channel. Moreover there is going to be a 32bit to 64bit users automigration very soon.
You can download whatever version you can https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/
Waterfox is Firefox's spin-off which has nothing to do with Mozilla.
great! auto migration is news to me. But either you werent around when Mozilla dropped FF64 the first time or you were still using IE9. :banghead:

Isn't the 32-bit download the default because of compatibility with past 32-bit plugins?

Downloading the 64-bit build isn't hard.

All you have to do is click where the red arrow is.

What plugins anyway? Those are all 64bit so I don't get it why they are insisting on 32bit when they themselves blocked most of them anyway? It's almost impossible to get new device with 32bit Windows anyway. I have a crappy hybrid tablet with 2GB RAM and it came with Windows 10 64bit.

Seriously, the standard download for the browser gives you the option when you install of choosing 32 or 64 bit via the custom install menu. They released it a while ago, works flawlessly, even on my old setup.

32-bit compatible Add-ons are a security risk too. most of them are due to old code that hasnt been updated.
