Submission + - No more 64-bit Firefox nightlies for now (

SD-Arcadia writes: A bugzilla item informs us that 64-bit nightly builds of Firefox are not to be produced any more. This follows the somewhat one-sided discussion seen here.
Confusion caused by incompatible plugins are cited as the main reason for this decision. Those in favor of keeping the 64-bit build going mention that the most important plugins like flash and java already have 64-bit versions. Furthermore the future of computing is 64-bit, and with 64-bit IE and Opera already available (and Chrome coming soon) this could leave Firefox in a strange spot.

I've got a bad feeling about this.
