Installation on 64bit Win 7

Summary: Installation on 64bit Win 7

I use Windows 7 64 bit that came with my new Toshiba laptop. 
My only browser for the last few years has been FF, that includes
running it on my main work horse - OpenSuse linux PC.

I downloaded and installed FF (32bit) without any problems. On the very
last screen of the installation process there is a box that can be
checked if Ff should be started immediately. I checked that and finished
the installation. Withing a few seconds, I got a popup informing me that
FF had crashed and did I want to try to reload it. I clicked on yes and
the same thing happened. 

After a couple of tries, I tried starting it in safemode, which worked
fine, but obviously not with everything I wanted. 

I finally found a 64 bit version of FF, called Shiretoko, and installed
that, and it works perfectly except for one glaring problem. It does NOT
work with Adobe Flash. I have updated flash countless times and
installed it and it works fine on my laptop, but every site I go to with
Shiretoko, no chance, I keep getting a message that I need to install
the latest version of Flash or I don't have flash installed and that I
need to do so. 

So, if someone has a solution, please help me. Either fix FF 2 bit so it
runs properly on win 7 64 bit, or fix Shiretoko so it works with Flash.
As it is I am being forced to use Chrome more and more. It is ok, but
I'd rather be using FF.
