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? disable the Cooliris Previews extension, then get an fixed version of that extension from the Cooliris website

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

I got the exact same problem, it's not some flash thing since it even pops-up on blank pages.

I had the same issue on What is going on? Version 3.6.3 on Ubuntu 9.04

me too omg this is annoying hope someone finds out what this is soon

Google's celebrating PacMan's 30th anniversary, they have a fancy logo. With sound. Brilliant idea that was =/

The same problem on FF with Vista Home Basic... Even if I log on other sites the sound still goes on.

Wow notice how everyone started getting this problem at the same time?

I have the same problems!!!

Please stop this damn sound!!! XDD

I have removed Firefox and re-installed (sorry for english xD) but the problem is not vanished. :|


Same problem here! it's driving me insane! Please help!

@ Rahid, I get the sounds even without Google. Although I have google search option in my task bar.

Has anyone found the solution to this yet? so annoying!!!

Closing and re-opening FF doesn't seem to help. Closing and re-opening FF with a different home page ( had been my home page - changed it to still doesn't help. What is FireFox doing that keeps playing this damn sound file???

same problem too even changing default home page and search case to non google won't help even after restarting even after clearing all browser history, coockies....

stupid celebration they should have tested this before releasing it

this is so annoying lol wtf. pacman noises arrgh

so if it is really a google celebration, how do we stop it?
