When I open firefox I get pacman sounds in the background...
I opened my firefox like normal and when I do, no matter what page i go to, i still get the pacman noises. There are no pop ups open and internet explorer seems to work fine.
Every time Firefox opened

Disable Cool Preview addon, restart firefox and you will be fine. Happy birthday Pacman. GTFO!Read this answer in context 👍 0

Turned off Cool Previews and problem went away on Firefox. However, when I start Google chrome I get the same thing. The google search box shows a pacman game playing with music - so it seems it is definitely googles pacman stupidity. Once you type in a different search the issue goes away.
AAA Firefox user
I'm Mac user...
I've the same problem today !!!!!
Uninstall cool preview doesn't change nothing!
yes that was certainly an ANNOYING bug!!!!!! The damn pacman sound had me worried I thought I had a major virus
I disabled my cool previews add on and it went away
Had the same problem today. Happily, mjr's post helped: I disabled the 'Cool previews' and everything went OK. P.S. Have the same problem with Chromium... But Links works fine. :)
Thanks mjr! Uninstalling the "Cool Previews"extension fixed my problem too.
It was a google doodle for celebrating 30 years of pac-man game http://cybergyaan.blogspot.com/2010/0.../google-plays-pacman.html
I was thinking about a virus/malware...thank you!!!
I had a same problem. It was fixed when I disabled my CoolPreviews add-on. Go to 'Tools' then 'Add-ons' then under CoolPrieviews click on the Disable button. Hope it helps.
but i loooove my cool previews!! :S
I had the problem also, very aggravating pack-man music and then sirens. I uninstalled cool previews and it went away. I suggest if you have it installed, uninstall it.
Uninstalling Cool Previews worked for me.
I SO NEED HELP THE PACMAN NOISE IS IRRITATING ME! Any suggestions
Disable cooliris, it got rid of my problem.
Yep, I disabled Cool preview and it disappeared (after a restart of firefox).
Habe auch das selbe Problem seid heute Abend. Bis heute 14.00 hat noch alles ohne Probleme geklappt
Funny I was on my computer earlier today around 6am and I use Firefox (3.6.3) and didn't hear any PacMan sound. Now I just log in around 11am and get this PacMan sound ...so I did what was suggested above, and the PacMan sound has gone away. I also sent an email to CoolIris folks mention this issue.
Wow that has to be the dumbest move ever.Sure hope Cool Preview enjoys alienating a boatload of users.
Same problem, so damn annoying!!!
$hit, am i being hacked.? i cleared all my history and cache still hear this Pacman sound in the background, safari browser are fine, please fix this or i will start using other browsers.
