Is it possible to install a 64bit and a 32bit version of Minefield in parallel? I know that it probably doesn't work with both running at the same time (given that they would want to share the profile folder), but I just would like to keep the option to go 32bit (with more support for plugins) when I need it.

You can install them in separate folders, but as you said - they make use of the same profile.

though, you can make a separate profile; using firefox -profilemanager – Lie Ryan Oct 30 '10 at 17:15
@lie - true. Perhaps use Firefox sync to get all your bookmarks and other such. – Sathya Oct 30 '10 at 17:16
Well, I'm totally fine with them sharing the same profiles, settings and such. I just want a backup 32bit browser :) – poke Oct 30 '10 at 17:24
