64-bit works with Flash without issues. I am using that on several machines
with no problems. I did not have to do anything special. I think Firefox
spawns a process called npviewer that encapsulates the 32-bit Flash.

Not that it will solve your problem, but if I had such a machine, I will go
64-bit for sure.
