This is not true. Its important that myths like this do not spread.

What is true is that it is not possible to use shared objects compiled
for one word size with host apps compiled for another. So, if you run
your amd64 processor(s) in 64 bit mode, you will not have
flash/shockwave inside firefox since there are not 64 bit plugin
versions available.
