I seems to be, only at some flash pages. (ex. www.formzet.nl) 
when i refresh and when i clear the cache, there's no error.

when opening a page containing flash media i get a alert: Can't find entry point
procedure ??1nsGetInterface@@UAE@XZ not found in DLL-file xpcom.dll.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. close the webbrowser (exit)
2. open the webbrowser (start)
3. open a flash website
Please try this :
uninstall Mozilla, delete all files in c:\program files\mozilla.org (except the
plugins subdiretory) and delete c:\program files\common files\Mozilla... and
reinstall Mozilla

matti: where does the flash plugin live?

reporter: please follow the steps on
http://www.mozilla.org/quality/help/dependency-walker.html
after step 12 you should probably zip the resulting dwi file before you proceed
to step 13.
timeless: That depends if Mozilal found flash in another directory or in the
plugins directory itself...

You can see the path in about:plugins if you set plugin.expose_full_path to true.
Type about:config into the location bar, then expo into the Filter, then you
should see the pref. Right-click on it, and modify.
What version of flash is installed?

I've tried this method. But it didn't work.
I think i'm going to downgrade to 1.6 for the time being. 
This alert is driving me nuts :@.
