Windows 7: Adobe Flash Player not working

Adobe Flash Player not working

Good Day, Thanks in advance for any help and time with this problem.
Windows 7 HP SP1 64bit, Firefox 36.0, Flash 32 bit.

I have been having problems with Adobe Flash Player, It started with problems
in my Firefox 36.0 browser, Flash would hang saying "plugin" had stopped "cancel or Keep Trying"
if I cancel, browser continues to work, but if I try to run the plugin it freezes Firefox.

I have uninstalled Flash Player and Firefox and reinstalled but this did nothing to help.
Now it seems Flash player won't even work. As well, I have tried both 32 bit and 64 bit versions, which should I be using?

Adobe Flash Player
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. How can I get a 32-bit browser for my 64-bit Windows 7 Home premium operating system?
