Will I experience any lack of performance if I have a 64-bit processor and run a 32-bit web browser (i.e. Firefox 18) on a 64-bit operating system (i.e. Windows 8 x64)? What will the difference be as opposed to if I used a 64-bit browser?

Thanks!

In fact, e.g. the 32bit IE is a lot faster than the 64bit IE - on a 64bit system. Don't know about FF, I don't use that.
