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!

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.

It's not flash.

It's Javascript. That's why it is able to run with ease.

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
