I am having the same problem with mine...wondering if it is a virus.
Same problem on a mac (10.5)
The same thing is happening on my laptop! It's soooo annoying. No problems with other internet browsers, just firefox. It started just this morning.
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 his computer.
All you have to do is disable the "Cool Previews" add on for firefox. Go to the "Tools" link at the top of the browser, go down to "Add Ons", go to the "Cool Previews", click "Disable". Then restart firefox and it should be fine!a
This just happened to me also, same Mario sound.
On my computer it was the cool preview add-on so you should try through trial and error to find out which add-on is causing Google's PAC-man game too bug
Thanks Sheila, you saved the day / my nerves!
Thank you Sheila, that fix works. Bizarre bug though.
Well for me it was the shockwave flash plugin which gave me the sound
Same here Mac OSX 10.4.
for me it was the cool previews as well thank goodness it wasn't a virus now i can start playing pacemen Google style~ :D
Same problem! Where's the solutions ?
I put the flashblock add on and it made it go away.
Sheila....you f-ing ROCK!!!!
thank you- was just about to reinstall before i thought i'd search for the newest virus cool previews it was
My god, this thread is full of idiots.
Yes, disabling CoolPreview-s solved the problem. Such a weird problem!
