first time this happened i followed the link 'cap&design' under 'tidningar' in
the upper left corner. it doesn't happen every time but if i browse the site for
some 6-7 links, it often does. ctrl + alt + del doesn't help, but i have to
press 'reset'.

last time at http://www.capdesign.idg.se, i checked some of the links on the
left side of the window, and the fourth time it totally crashed on me again. i
visited 'tips&tricks', 'länkar' and 'jobb' and then 'aktuellt nummer' in that
order. don't have to mention how annoying it is to have to do a hard restart,
i'm sure, but...

this has happened four times to me now, so i won't go there with mozilla again.
perhaps just bad coded scripts? once it happeded to me under 'tips & tricks', so
i get the feeling it can happen under any link any time but i am not sure.

i use the default theme

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1.go to http://www.capdesign.idg.se
2.follow some (i think) arbitrary links

Actual Results:  
total lockup, ctrl + alt + del doesn't make any difference. the mouse freezes too.

searched for the gkhtml.dll file, but didn't find any.
Do you get a crash first or a simple hang ?

>searched for the gkhtml.dll file, but didn't find any.
why do you searched gkhtml.dll ?

when i reported the bug, it says:
If you are reporting a crash, note the module in which Mozilla crashed (e.g.,
Application Violation in gkhtml.dll).
at the bottom just above 'additional info'. i thaught it was some kind of
log-file that was generated..
This is difficult to fix because it works on my system.

Which flash version Do you use ? (see mozilla menu : Help/about Plugins)
A comeplete hang is often a result of a problem with the graphic card driver,
have you tried to update the driver ?

i use flash plugin version 5.0 r41

as a graphic card i have permedia 2, and they don't seem to update drivers for
that old one anymore, unfortunately. however, explorer works at the site
