Comment (by bugzilla):

 > Mozilla added the -64 to allow them to update people from 32-bit Firefox
 to 64-bit Firefox (although as far as I know they have not done that yet).
 Because they are so feature-different as separate products ;)
 > I think someone with an old CPU might generate requests that include
 WINNT_x86-gcc3-x86, so we should allow for that too.
 All our machines with 32-bit Windows of all versions had been updated
 through WINNT_x86-gcc3-x86 before this ticket was created :) And no, most
 of them have x64 not old CPUs ;)
 > Do we already leak the processor architecture?
 So this is only the Edition of Windows (x86 or x64), despite of how
 Mozilla calls it.
 But according to #19316, they are going to detect and report far more info
 than just CPU arch...
