    Hello. I upgraded Firefox to 10.0.1. I noticed that whenever I browse www.macrumors.com, at the top it is suggested that I switch to 32-bit mode. Anybody knows why? I don't recall getting such request accessing this site before. Thanks.

    Can you post a screen shot? I don't see anything like what you describe in Firefox 10.0.1 on my computer.

    Thanks SandboxGeneral. That problem is gone. It was there whenever I accessed the site after the update.

    If it happens again, grab a screenshot and post it. I'm curious to see and understand why you got that.

    My guess as to why it appeared is that the page was trying to use a 32-bit plugin and FireFox was telling you to use 32-bit mode to use the plugin. The plugin in question could be Adobe Flash.
