Haha that was amusing.

That pacman noise was getting very annoying. Glad that I wasn't the only one with the problem.

Disabling Cool Previews fixed it right up.

Thanks everyone!

I've had the same problem the whole morning with my Firefox, it only happened with Firefox, no matter what webpage I were on that infernal sound would be there, I tried to find a reason for it so I googled the problem, they said it didn't happen on other browsers and right now I'm using google chrome or internet explorer cus that sound was killing me, it doesn't happen on any of the browser I named before, I wan't my Firefox though =S
