How to Upgrade Firefox from 32-bit to 64-bit in Windows Without Reinstalling

Most web browsers are installed in Windows as 64-bit versions by default, Firefox being the exception. If you installed the default download of Firefox, you have the 32-bit version, not the 64-bit version, even if you’re running a 64-bit version of Windows.

Say you recently got a new Windows computer. After installing the 32-bit version of Firefox from the main page, you installed your favorite add-ons, restored your backed up bookmarks, and even set up multiple profiles for personal and work purposes. But, now you want to upgrade to the 64-bit version of Firefox for better performance. You could uninstall the 32-bit version and then install the 64-bit version, but doing so will remove your Firefox user data, such as saved passwords, bookmarks, settings, extensions, and themes.

You could back up your profile folders from the 32-bit version of Firefox and then restore them after uninstalling Firefox and installing the 64-bit version. But that’s a bit of a hassle, and there is an easier way.

NOTE: Firefox 64-bit can only be installed on 64-bit Windows. If you’re not sure which version of Windows you’re running, you can easily check. If you’re running 32-bit Windows, you cannot upgrade Firefox to 64-bit.

If you’re not sure if you’re running 32-bit or 64-bit Firefox,…

How to Transfer Pictures to the PlayStation 4 or Pro

People have long wanted to transfer images to their PlayStation consoles, but with the recent update that (finally) allows custom wallpapers, there has never been a better time to know how to do this. The unfortunate thing here is that there’s no straightforward way to simply transfer images to the PlayStation, so a workaround in necessary.

There are a couple of different ways of going about getting images to your PlayStation 4 or Pro, and we’ll outline them both here. Spoiler: they both end in taking a screenshot of your PS4 screen.

Method One: Use PlayStation Messenger

This is probably the easiest way to get images onto your PS4, and it’s also probably the most common way to do it.

Basically, you’ll need to have the image you want to move to the PS4 saved on your phone, and have the PlayStation Messenger app for Android or iOS installed.

Open the PlayStation Messenger app on your phone, and either pen a new message or choose an existing one. Whichever way you go, make sure it’s to someone who isn’t going to mind getting random images from you.

Attach the image to the message…

How to Configure a Proxy Server on Android

Android allows you to configure proxy settings for each Wi-Fi network. This is sometimes required to access the Internet on a business or school network, for example. Your browser traffic will be sent through the proxy you configure.

The proxy you configure will be used by Chrome and other web browsers, but may not be used by other apps. Each app developer can choose whether it uses Android’s proxy or not. That’s another good reason why you should use a VPN instead of a proxy. WIth a VPN, you can force all app’s network traffic through the VPN connection. It’s a better way to hide your IP address or access geoblocked websites that aren’t available in your country.

This process is the same for all modern versions of Android, from Android 4.0 through 7.1. Some device manufacturers change the way Android’s Settings screen looks and functions, so you may find your Wi-Fi or proxy settings in a slightly different location.

Open Android’s Settings app and tap “Wi-Fi” to view a list of Wi-Fi networks.

Long-press the name of the Wi-Fi network you want to change the proxy settings for. Tap “Modify Network” when a menu appears.

If you haven’t already connected to the Wi-Fi network, you’ll need to connect to the Wi-Fi network and enter its passphrase before…

How to Stop Websites From Asking For Your Location

Modern web browsers allow websites to ask for your location through a prompt. If you’re tired of seeing these prompts, you can disable them and websites won’t be able to ask for your location anymore.

Websites that ask for your location usually allow you to plug in a zip code or address instead. You don’t need to provide precise access to your location via your web browser’s location services, so you likely won’t lose much functionality by turning this off.
