Yeah, I noticed that Firefox x64 didn't support XP-64. Anyway one could get around that?

Can the normal Firefox code be compiled for 64-bit? Or is it too different?

IF not, 32-bit FF works okay.

I believe Waterfox supports XP x64
Its a branched off version of Firefox.

When the main version of a web browser doesn't support XP, usually its best to look for branched off versions if you hope for legacy support.

WaterFox does indeed provide Windows XP 64-bit support.

In other news, Google Chrome fails to load the WaterFox home page. What gives?

Yes, I can confirm the latest Waterfox runs on XP x64. Despite being 32-bit, I use Palemoon as my main browser on XP. It's significantly faster than Firefox, uses far less RAM, and retains the Firefox 4 style interface.
