How do you get 64-bit Firefox?

If you’re running 64-bit Windows (here’s how to check), your Firefox may already be 64-bit. Check your Firefox version (in the “About Firefox” window) and look for “(32-bit)” or “(64-bit)” after the version number:

  • If you see “(32-bit)” and you are running Firefox 56.0 or older, updating to the latest Firefox version should automatically upgrade you to 64-bit.
  • If you see “(32-bit)” and are running Firefox 56.0.1 or newer, then your computer may not meet the minimum memory requirement for 64-bit (3 GB RAM or more). You can still manually install 64-bit Firefox, if you choose.
If you need to run 32-bit Firefox or manually install 64-bit Firefox, you can simply download and re-run the Windows (32-bit or 64-bit) Firefox installer from the Firefox platforms and languages download page.

A personal firewall is a security program that oversees all of your computer's connections to the Internet. It may be included as part of an Internet security suite, or it may be a free-standing program. Most personal firewalls will deny Internet access to any program, or a new version of any program, unless you have specifically allowed access. This article will help you find information about configuring your firewall to work with Firefox.

Note: In some cases, disabling an Internet security program or firewall does not stop all of its parts from being active. A program that reports that it is disabled may still be able to block Firefox.
