I have a weird alarm sound whenever I open Firefox. It sounds like simplistic electronic music at first then it morphs into a siren sound. A Norton Quick Scan turned up nothing. I'm doing a full system scan now. The sound continues unabated as long as the browser is open. It stops as soon as the browser is closed.

I posted earlier about this alarm sound. What is cool preview and how do I turn it off? Is it an add-on? I don't see it listed on my computer. I'm still having the problem.

When you are in Firefox ... go to Tools ... clk on addons and disable Cool Preview. Apparently you have it or you wouldn't be hearing the alarm sound. I wish I knew when it was going to stop so I could enable it again.
