Firefox is still testing out the 64-Bit version:

Right now, there is no 64-Bit version of Flash Player, meaning that a great many embedded videos wouldn't work.

I'd recommend the 32-Bit version:

If you are seeing that many crashes, you may have a computer issue.

I have win7/x64 and surf a lot with Firefox (and I have ~17 extensions installed) and I can't remember the last time it crashed for me.

Anytime I build a new computer or do a serious upgrade. I run Prime95 "Torture test" overnight to make sure it is stable. It should run indefinitely without issue, but overnight provides a decent level of stability testing.

I mentioned it to a friend of mine and it failed after 15 minutes highlighting serious stability issues.
