Mozilla gives up on 64-bit Firefox development

Neowin noticed Mozilla Engineering Manager Benjamin Smedberg revealed yesterday that the 64-bit Windows version of the company's Firefox browser has been cancelled due to too many issues with plug-ins.
In a post on the Bugzilla development page written on Wednesday, Smedberg states, "Please stop building windows 64 builds and tests." He outlined his feelings on the matter in an earlier post on a Google Groups development board. Some of the reasons deal with plug-in issues, with Smedberg saying, "Many plugins are not available in 64-bit versions." He added, "The plugins that are available don’t work correctly in Firefox because we haven’t implemented things like windowproc hooking, which means that hangs are more common."
