Under certain circumstances, it's often better to have a 32bit firefox, 32bit java browser plugin, et cetera. This is b/c the 64bit Adobe Flash plugin tends to be... hard to come by (the beta was closed recently). I wouldn't be overly concerned, unless you find an app that is broken on 64bit (an old one from Debian Lenny [and older] is procinfo-18. Squeeze replaces it with [my] procinfo-ng. I really should make another release of procinfo-ng).
