Users on 64-bit Windows who download Firefox can get our 64-bit version by default. That means you get a more secure version of Firefox, one that also crashes a whole lot less. How much less? In our tests so far, 64-bit Firefox reduced crashes by 39% on machines with 4GB of RAM or more.

What’s the difference between 32-bit and 64-bit?

Here’s the key thing to know: 64-bit applications can access more memory and are less likely to crash than 32-bit applications. Also, with the jump from 32 to 64 bits, a security feature called Address Space Layout Randomization (ASLR) works better to protect you from attackers. Linux and macOS users, fret not, you already enjoy a Firefox that’s optimized for 64-bit.

How do you get 64-bit Firefox?

  1. The tests compared Firefox Quantum (57)’s speed and memory against previous versions of Firefox, and of Chrome. They found that while results varied based on your computer and the apps you’re using, Firefox Quantum was approximately 2x faster than any previous version of Firefox.
  2. Get Firefox, a free web browser backed by Mozilla, a non-profit dedicated to internet health and privacy. Available now on Windows, Mac, Linux, Android and iOS.

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.

At the top right corner of the page, you should see a button that says 'Refresh Firefox' ('Reset Firefox' in older Firefox versions). Firefox will close. After the refresh process is completed, Firefox will show a window with the information that is imported. Click Finish and Firefox.

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.

Fast, lightweight, secure and easily configurable, Firefox Quantum for Enterprise should be your go-to for business browsing.

Browsers are key to how everyone in your company works, but how often do you think about them? A memory-hungry browser can slow your systems to a crawl, killing productivity across your org. Replacing it with a fast, lightweight browser is an easy win for IT.

Last fall, Mozilla launched Firefox Quantum, an all-new browser based on an advanced rendering engine that bests every other browser and uses less memory. Independent tests proved its blazing-fast performance and miserly memory usage, and Wired wrote that “Firefox Quantum is the browser built for 2017”.

Now Firefox Quantum is available for enterprise. It can easily be configured for deployment through Windows Group Policy or a basic JSON file.

Still, why would you replace the stock browser on any of your company’s machines? So you can be an IT hero, of course.

Fast Browser = Fast Business

Salesforce, Eloqua, G Suite, Github, Codepen—the list is endless. Modern business runs on the web, and the browser is key to it all. The browser is the most-used application on any machine. It should be fast, reliable, and secure. Firefox Quantum runs modern web apps smoothly while using less memory than other browsers. That means people can get more done in less time, which means one thing: Productivity.

What makes Quantum fast?

We spent the last decade or so completely rewriting the Firefox rendering engine, the machinery that turns web code into something humans can use. It’s based on Rust, a new programming language that we built with the open-source community. This lets Firefox use multiple cores in a computer’s CPU to crunch numbers in parallel. Which makes Firefox Quantum super fast.

Firefox Quantum uses a “just right” multi-process architecture that balances speed with memory usage. That means it loads pages faster than Chrome and Edge, while using less memory. Your users can open all the tabs they want while running other apps without crashing their systems. And that means fewer tickets filed, and fewer late nights and headaches for you.

Firefox is Secure

We’re serious about security. Firefox Quantum sandboxes web page content to help prevent it from escaping and infecting users’ systems. Firefox Quantum also doesn’t track user activity for any targeted advertising, unlike some other browsers. We’ve also added Tracking Protection to Firefox, which stops tracking scripts from many third-party advertisers.

All of it makes Firefox super secure, which means fewer malware interruptions and emergencies.

Configure with Windows Group Policy or JSON

With Firefox Quantum for Enterprise, you have complete control over settings and permissions. If you’re running Windows, you can start fast with ADMX templates and set prefs through Group Policy and deploy Firefox to an Active Directory. You know how it works:

If you’re working with Mac and Linux, you can do the same thing with a simple JSON file in the Firefox install directory.

Rapid or Extended Support Release

Firefox Quantum for Enterprise comes in two flavors: Rapid Release (RR) or the Extended Support Release (ESR). Rapid Release automatically gets performance upgrades and new features about every six weeks. Most web developers test their sites against Rapid Release, so it should work well with SaaS apps.

Extended Support Release (ESR) gets about one major per year. If you need to test against custom apps, or need strict control of updates, ESR is for you.

Both RR and ESR get critical security patches ASAP.
