I have a Windows 7 64-bit machine, and know absolutely nothing about 64-bit machines...as I've always had a 32-bit until now.

I use Mozilla Firefox, but I don't know if it will work on a 64-bit computer? If it isn't compatible, am I doing harm to my computer?

Don't worry about it, just go ahead and download it, and start using it as normal, FF works on all systems !

If life is not an option then why are we not given the option in the first place !

For future reference, most 32 bit apps will run just fine on Windows 7 64 bit (they run in an emulated 32 bit environment, but you probably don't want the technical details :) ). And there is NEVER any harm in trying a 32 bit app to see if it will work - it certainly can't do any harm to your system.
