I disabled cool previews and it worked thanks! The sounds started when i played a zelda video on newgrounds. Anyway, does anyone know the reason do this? is it a google thing, because i didn't touch google till i had this problem.

Disabling Cool Previews also stopped the same siren noise on my computer. Boy, is that annoying!! Unfortunately, I used Cool Previews all the time.

Firefox techs -- please debug this ASAP!!!
