    trying to find 32bit version of silverlight


    I'm trying to find the 32bit version of silverlight as my primary browser cant support the 64 bit version of silverlight.

    can someone toss me a link to the 32 bit installer?

    Possibly from here?
    Silverlight 5.1.30514 (32-bit) Download for Windows / FileHorse.com
    Caveat .. I have never used that firehorse.com website so use at your own risk

    Or from here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/905590

    Thought Silverlight was just an optional update ? Not necessarily needed ?

    Microsoft Silverlight

    But why do they need it ?

    I run Chrome, no issues, and installed Silverlight through windows update.

    Can`t tell whether it`s 32 or 64 bit, it`s just listed in Add Remove programs.
