64 bit flash

How can I view flash with my 64bit system?

I tried to install a 32 bit version of firefox but I said no such file or directory.

Assuming by "64-bit" you mean AMD64/EM64T and by the "32-bit" you mean 32-bit x86.

Since Macromedia Flash is not available for AMD64 yet, and the 32-bit x86 version of it won't work with an AMD64 version of web browsers, you'll have to install a 32-bit x86 version of the web browser in a chroot containing a 32-bit x86 installation, and there install the 32-bit x86 Macromedia Flash plugin and use that 32-bit x86 version of the browser whenever you need to access web pages containing Flash animations.

See this document regarding setting up such a chrooted environment for 32-bit x86 applications on an AMD64 system running an AMD64 version of Debian.
