Fix Google PAC-MAN Doodle Sound Firefox Bug
By on May 21st, 2010

I have been talking a lot about the recent Google PAC-MAN Doodle which was cute when it started out but has gradually turned out to be a real pain in the rear for several users specially those who are using Firefox.

Now this would not be an issue but since Google has decided to run this doodle for 48 hours people may still go crazy till then. Earlier today, I wrote a piece on how you can mute the Google PAC-MAN Doodle, however that issue is not fool proof.

On another post where I wrote about the  PAC-MAN annoyance, several users are complaining that when they use Firefox the annoying PAC-MAN music won’t go away even when they close the Google.com tab.

However, on the same post several commentators also posted a workaround, however, this involves disabling a particular Firefox add-on called CoolPreviews. This solution is definitely not something one would have to do because of an annoying website, however, according to the commentators, this will definitely fix the issue.

Hopefully, Google should be hearing this loud and clear, probably louder and clearer than the annoying sound of the PAC-MAN game and make sure to test things very well, or at the least provide users an option to turn or mute the sound.

Thanks for the solution Bryan.
