32 & 64 bits simultaneously installed

Installed 32bit Pale Moon. It's a great App, Thanks.

Can I install 64 bit simultaneously with 32 bit so they both share the same profile ?

Since you posted this in the portable board, I assume you are using the portable version.
In that case, the answer is "no". The portable is not designed for a central profile location.

If you actually installed the browser normally, then yes, it's simple: just install the 64-bit one as well.
Please do note you can not run them at the same time in that case, but you can switch by closing one then opening the other.

Yes, I'm using the portable version.
I presume from your reply; the profile cannot be shared via editing "Palemoon-Portable.ini".

Edit: Of I see that I can simply install both versions and use "Sync". Thanks!
