startup with irritating music - shockwave flash plugin?

Posted

today when I started firefox it spontaneously started playing "music". If I disable the shockwave plugin the music stops but restarting firefox restarts the music. Where to find what's causing this?

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== Today, since I last used my PC 2 days ago.

Chosen solution

Caused by a sound file in the Google page - their 30th Anniversary celebration of PacMan. Disable the CoolIris Previews extension or get an updated version of that extension from the Coolpreviews website.
