As per our long-standing policy on 64-bit apps laid out in 64-bit Software: Where It Fits Into Portable Apps, we do not make available 64-bit only apps, we only do user-friendly dual-mode 32-bit//64-bit apps so they always work. So why a 64-bit build of Firefox Nightly? It's primarily to help with testing the 64-bit builds with a wider audience to better enable bug finding and fixing.
It's important to note that this build will not work on 32-bit Windows machines and you'll have no way of knowing if it will work without checking the machine's details or just trying it. The 64-bit builds of Firefox are not as stable or consistent as the 32-bit builds. The 64-bit builds often test slower on many browser speed tests as a result. No stable, beta or even alpha builds of 64-bit Firefox are expected anytime in the near future.
