Thread: Firefox playing funny tones

    Default Firefox playing funny tones

    Hello together,

    since today, when I start firefox, it starts to play funny tones after a few seconds (even if I don't open a website). If I deactivate the Shockwave Flash plugin it stops.
    Does anybody have an idea what it is the reason?

    Thanks
    Albert

    Hi
    Is google your home page? If so, maybe the packman game is starting?

    If you have the Fx addon Cool Previews disable it.
    Google is being overly clever and is featuring a PacMan game on its home page today. If this does not work try disabling any Google related extension,for today. Hopefully tomorrow it'll be gone.

    Yes I have installed CoolPreviews. So this was possible the problem. Today it is quite, so the problem seems to be solved.

    Thanks
