Firefox 4 restart in 32bit mode?
Posted by: Manlove
Date: April 29, 2011 11:28AM
How do I change the setting so that it's always in 32 bit mode. Netflix and some other sites say that I have to restart the browser- FF4- in 32 bit mode. I didn't know I'd asked it to start in 64 bit mode!?
Thanks.

edit- I'm running 10.6.7.

In the Finder, select the Firefox application icon, Get Info, and check the "Open in 32-bit mode" box.

Get Info on Firefox. Check the 32-bit box.

Thanks chaps.
I was looking in FF4 prefs, because, you know, it seemed like a preference!

I got an error like that when i tried to run Logmein. When I restarted in 32 bit mode, FF didn't work right.

That's because I'm running in 64-bit mode!

If you upgrade your Flash and Silverlight plugins, you shouldn't have to run in 32-bit mode to play videos.

OTOH, Flash 10 has some really bad frame-dropping problems in recent revisions and its hardware-acceleration is a mess so maybe you're better off running an old version.

I appreciate your clear instructions. However, I did exactly that, and Firefox kept re-starting NOT in 32-bit mode. Checked it several times, and went back to Get Info to be sure the 32-bit mode was checked and it was, and it kept asking me to re-start in 32-bit mode. What else can I do?

Thanks for your suggestions.
