I have another kind of problem with Firefox
When opening my firefox browser page, I get a sound like an ambulance siren, and sounds that a tech at Cox Communications id'ed as PacMan noise. The tech also stated that he heard the same noise on the Google browser page yesterday. Any suggestions/solutions?

Exactly Uninstalling Cool Previews fixed it, thanks for the suggestion, BTW What the hell it was ??? I even uninstalled coloris is that is also associated with the problem in some way.
I disabled Cool Preview and still had the awful sound coming up, until I stopped using Google as my search home page and used Bing, always on Mozilla. Therefore I think this is a Google problem!
nvm got it lol add-ons tab bar was hidden for some reason but yeh screw u google n screw u cool previews!!!!!!
The sounds are coming from Google.com
Just disable coolpreview or change your default home page by reseting it back to Mozilla's Google home page.
disabling cool previews did the trick
It's not flash.
THANK YOU! I thought i was alone, DAMN this is annoying! I searched for this kind of problem on google for like an hour and that ambulance siren sound is KILLING ME. I can't watch stuff on youtube because of that annoying sound! When is it going to end? :O
Daniel Bolivar, umad bro?
JUST DISABLE COOL PREVIEWS IN YOUR ADDONS. IT WORKS. STUPID GOOGLE!!!
IF YOU ARE HAVING THIS PROBLEM YOU NEED TO UNINSTALL THE ADD ON ------> COOL PREVIEWS... JUST CLICK ON TOOLS...ADD ONS...EXTENSIONS ....THEN SELECT "COOL PREVIEWS" ADD ON AND UNINSTALL...
Hi everyone! I will be posting this in all "weird sounds topics" just so you know.
These "weird" sounds you hear are from pacman. Today is Pacmans 30:th birthday and google wanted to celebrate by making the pacman game playable at their website "www.google.com". You will notice that their logo is changed to pacman with the map swapped out to the text "google". The game will probably just be here today so all noises will be gone by tomorrow. If you don't want to hear the sound today then please don't visit google or just turn your volume down.
Yours sincerely: LAwLz
