Because it's Windows Vista R2! Officially, Microsoft say it is to maintain compatibility with software that depends on checking the version of the OS to run properly.

Windows 7 is a significant and evolutionary advancement of the client operating system. It is in every way a major effort in design, engineering, and innovation. The only thing to read into the code versioning is that we are absolutely committed to making sure application compatibility is optimized for our customers
That doesn't work for Windows Phone though...

It's probably worth mentioning that WaterFox v9.0 was released a few days ago too. I use the 64-bit nightly builds of Firefox myself however.
Waterfox is a 64-Bit version of Firefox. The Firefox source code is taken and compiled to run specifically for 64-Bit Windows computers. To make Waterfox stand out a bit more, itís compiled with optimizations so that it will run more efficiently and faster than just compiling Firefox as a 64-Bit program. For some people with older systems, the 64-Bit version loads quicker and is much more responsive than the 32-Bit build.

Waterfox doesn't support Battlelog though.

What's so special about Battlelog that it can't support 64-bit browsers?
If you set 64-bit Firefox as your default browser, could you use Battlelog Standalone as a workaround?
