the firefox registery entries would only record the last installation location, so which ever was the last installation would be the default...

But yes you can install both versions in different directories... and then create a shortcut to open the non-default firefox.exe

or you could just install the x86 version as the overall file size is smaller

If you truly wanted two distinct separate Firefoxes, you have to also contend with the default Users [acct name] AppData Local and Roaming directories. I do not know if you can "tell" FF32 to use a different set of AppData directories and not use FF64 AppData directories. Both msIE 32-bit and msIE 64-bit share the same AppData folders -- to give an example of dual browsers, on one computer, one user, sharing the one set of AppData folders.
