2 times i have sent a message with the same problem. got 2 different answers and neither has worked. pop-ups come up and the sound starts. exit out and the sound is still heard with no way to stop it unless i close out firefox. this is ridiculous, i don't have this problem with windows explorer.

I have the same problem with Firefox 3.6.6 except that the sound does turn off. I have blocked each site and a new one appears each time I start Firefox.
