  i would try *really* hard to debug the 64-bit version before dumping
the inevitable truckload of 32-bit packages on your 64-bit system.
currently, i have no i686 packages on my system and firefox seems to
be working well (except for this *really* annoying scroll issue where
a single scrollbar click will *zoom* madly down the page way more than
i want.  grrrrrrrr ...)
