Mozilla developer Armen Zambrano has announced the release of a downloadable pre-release version of the 64 bit edition of Firefox for Windows. Version "3.7a5pre" is an early stage nightly build and has not been subjected to the usual standard of testing. It is intended for experimental purposes only and not for live deployment.

Mozilla plans to support 64 bit processors in the forthcoming Firefox 4. According to a blog posting by Mozilla director Mike Beltzner, this could be available by the end of November. A previous blog posting from Mozilla developer John O'Duinn, notes that nightly builds of the 64 bit versions for Linux and Mac OS X have been available since 9th April. Nightly builds can be downloaded from the Mozilla FTP server.
