Why can't things just be simple?

because _you_ make it such complicated. anyone else would do two steps:
- uninstall 32bit
- install 64bit
*happy*

btw you were forced somehow to x64 in the near future:

Actually, it will have to be the other way, from 64 back to 32.

Note the Firefox 55 you have is on Beta channel and not Release.


Yes, I realize that now. I think in my earlier posts, I was saying it was Flash, but it was Java plugin.

The beta is otherwise fine, and the issue I am having does not relate to release or beta, but 64 vs. 32 bit. Thanks, though.
