Annoying siren sound comes on when I open Firefox and won't shut off.

Posted

When I open Firefox, an annoying siren sound comes on that I can't disable. What do I do, other than no longer use Firefox?

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

It's Pac-Man's 30th Birthday today, and Google's homepage is a playable Pac-Man game around the Google logo. My boyfriend had the same problem, then I went to Google and was like Hey, it's Pac-Man! And then the siren started. He plays fine on my laptop, but for some reason the music is stuck on with his Firefox Start / Google Search page. Don't know how to fix it, but that's what it is.

Yes, it started when I first opened my browser this morning with the Pac Man music then went to the siren sound and would not stop. I disabled Cool Previews as suggested above and it quit. Maybe need to uninstall and reinstall Cool Previews or try to find out why it's doing that. Thank you Unbekannt.

Same problem here on my Windows 7 pc. But when I disabled Shockwave 10.0.45.2 add-on, it stopped. But, of course, now I don't have shockwave running.

Thanks Unbekannt. CoolPreviews add-on is the issue... not Firefox! If you disable CoolPreviews add-on the music will stop. Disable the add-on as follows:

1. Click on Tools and then Add-ons 2. Add-ons window opens 3. Choose Extensions 4. Highlight CoolPreviews 5. Click Disable 6. Restart Firefox
