Starting this morning, when I start Firefox, the Pacman game music starts playing. It goes continuously, and I can't stop it. I saw a URL (that I didn't go to) that led to the Pacman file. Somehoe the browser went there and downloaded something. I dont have the URL anymore as I (stupidly) cleared my history.

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

Seems to be related to Google and Packman's 30th birthday, see this link: http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/forum/1/678159?

disabling CoolPreviews or Shockwave plugins solve this.

Google is doing a promotion for the 30th anniversary of Pacman, you can play a Pacman game by visiting http://www.google.com

To get a non-sound page you can use, http://www.google.com/firefox till Google switches back to their normal page. Usually these sorts of logo changes last no more than a day.

Its true that google is celebrating pacman's 30th birthday n yeah its a damn annoying surprise. Disabling plugins wont help, change ur default home page for a day, or just log into google.com and u can actually play the game and have a blast!!

Deactivating the Shockwave Flash Plugin works. Very annoying...

If you have coolpreview, enter "options of coolpreview" then go to the"Search" Tab and disable "Google search" and "Google Images" from the list of the right, that should do.
