What happens to FlashGot come x64 ?

What happens to FlashGot, on Windows, come (Mozilla) x64 ?
What happens now with FlashGot & Windows 64-bit versions of Mozilla (or derivatives)?

FlashGot will "work", but not (most) integration with external download managers, or would need to set up Custom Download Manager?

Separate versions x86 & x64?

Nothing happens, as FlashGot.exe is a stand-alone executable.
A problem may happen with a specific supported Windows download manager switches to a x64-only COM library.
