awesome! Now I just need Mozilla to release a 64 bit version of firefox and thats everything :D But Can you please tell me the advantages to using a 64bit version of Utorrent? I know the basics of how 64bit works, but I didn't think it would really have much of a effect on a torrent client.

Mozilla release a 64bit version of Firefox 4, but it won't make in stable release,

probably it will be released as stable with 4.X branch

nightly version - https://nightly.mozilla.org/

here is Flash 64bit and Java 64bit

and 64bit version of µTorrent use some kind of instruction set (SSEx) boost maybe ?

Apart fromt he disk cache that DreadWingKnight mentioned, there probably isn't much else no?

Not too sure about what that "SSEx" stuff is...

thumbs/heads up for the 64bit version!

seeing a lot of banning peer: too many pex messages in the log, as in the latest 32bit

experiencing frequent crashes, yet uT is not capturing the dumps and transmitting them home to the developers for debugging, used to be in the 32bit version

was that feature requested to turn off the status icons by default? probably better to have them on by default with the option to turn off

stated to make use of the rating feature - who is able to benefit from the ratings, just uT 3 users?

the ratings of one torrent do show up frequently on other torrents, as if the gui is not redrawing/refreshing properly

statistics are shortened as mentioned in the post above

Crashlog:

that is what I am experiencing too - on my end it gets more stable by imposing a global upload limit of max. 75 kB/s, still crashing but less frequently. no crash at global upload limit of max. 10 kB/s, which however is not useful for the torrent

should gui.color_progress_bars actually color (differently) the progress bar in the status column or how is that achieved, because here it remains plain blue

what is gui.show_av_icon suppose to do? toggled it on/off with no visible difference.
