According to some rumors on Google Groups, the shift would occur following the request of many developers have revealed that many users exceeded the limit of 4GB of memory imposed by 32-bit systems when using simultaneous a large number of tabs (called a hundred, or even thousands of pages simultaneously)

Are concerned nightly versions of Firefox, and each user wishing to continue to benefit from the 64-bit version will know and make himself the installation of future editions.

Indeed, the migration program has not changed, and future updates of existing 64bit version will offer a migration to 32-bit versions. Free to each user then go visit the official Firefox to download the 64 bit version in progress.

However, future versions will be considered 64bit editions and compatibility with third-party plug-ins and add-ons will not be assured. More than a return on its decision, it is a compromise that is proposed, allowing everyone to continue to use Firefox in its 64-bit version in addition to the standard version.
