The 32-bit version of the browser should work fine. There is nothing in 
the browser that I can think of that needs 64-bit support, and the 
i86_64 architecture can run 32-bit code efficiently :-). People bump 
into this somewhat regularly on the SuSE AMD64 list and 'run it 32-bit' 
is usually the solution. The only thing to be alert to is having all of 
the required 32-bit libraries installed, and in the right places. YMMV & 
all that ....
