Hi Sailaja.

You need to install the 32-bit version of firefox, say you install it into your home directory. The you can download macromedia flash from the website and untar the contents. Put the file into /home/sailaja/firefox/plugins/ or wherever you've installed it and then run the 32-bit version: /home/sailaja/firefox/firefox

A google search on this will return lots of instructions.
