Ok I might have been going on and on about the Google PAC-MAN Doodle, however, earlier today I wrote a post about fixing the continuous PAC-MAN music playing in Firefox and wanted to add in some final clarifications to it.
Many users may have thought that the bug was actually because of Google, however, the folks behind CoolPreviews, which was causing the issue have now clarified through a comment that the issue was actually on their end.
Here is what the Cool Previews team had to say about the issue (emphasis added by me):
So What Happened?
The bug came about through today’s Google’s homepage, which automatically starts a Pac Man game after 5 seconds. We had an old line of code from an experimental build that would load up the Google homepage in the background. We have now removed that code. Previously, Google did not have any music on their page. So, obviously, today’s debut Google’s mighty ghosts of Pac-Man really gobbled us up!
Again, we apologize for the craziest bug we’ve ever experienced! Super thanks to all our users for hanging in there!
For now disabling the plugin on Firefox or updating the plugin to the newer version will solve the issue. Hope this puts an end to this issue once and for all :-).
