Thanks Joe,

My motto is "never go back" Can't bring myself to revert to 32 bit
Firefox. Downloaded the two files in your apt repository. Apt made me
download Mozilla also. Trying to decide whether to keep Mozilla or
not. Can I just un-install it if I decide to ??

Question: Will the websites recognize the swfdec installation and stop
haranguing me for the flashplayer plugin ?? Do I need to do anything
special after installing those files ??

PS Joined the group asking Macromedia to make flashplayer 64 bit.
