Adobe Flash Player is not supported for playback in a 64-bit browser. However, you can run Flash Player in a 32-bit browser running on a 64-bit operating system.

Adobe is working on Flash Player support for 64-bit platforms as part of our ongoing commitment to the cross-platform compatibility of Flash Player. We expect to provide native support for 64-bit platforms in an upcoming release of Flash Player following Flash Player 10.

To use Flash Player to view Flash content on a 64-bit operating system, you must run a 32-bit browser.

Windows 7

Is it just me, or has Firefox gotten clunkier and clunkier over the years? I've been using it since before it was even named Firefox, but the interface and loading speeds seem dated and slow compared to the webkit browsers. All Firefox has over them is extensions, but I've yet to find any extensions that would keep me hanging around. (Ad-blocking can be done lower than browser level)

Even IE8 looks betters and loads faster (though the UI itself is slower). IMHO, Chrome on Windows and Safari on OS X make Firefox look like a dinosaur. None of the browsers around today are particularly bad, but Firefox (and its code base) doesn't wow me anymore. Not to mention Firefox refuses to follow host OS conventions (On Macs, close tab on right, zoom button works the windows way, not the mac way)
