In case anyone want to look into what has been discussed in the past
please go ahead and read the following topics:
"Windows 64-bit Firefox - Product Recommendations" [1] - March 12, 2012

 From Product's perspective we were recommended in March to maintain the
experimental nightly builds.

I would nevertheless recommend giving them a prompt telling them that
Windows 32-bit is maintained at this point and that they can migrate to
Windows 32-bit.

I would ask to move Win64 users on other branches to mozilla-central's.
