Stop Pac-Man Theme in Firefox

If you are using Firefox, you may have noticed that damned Pac-Man theme song running, non-stop, once you opened your browser. I'm going to show you how to stop it.

Google has a Pac-Man emulator on their homepage in honor of the original arcade video game's 30th birthday. Whether or not you have Google set as your homepage, Firefox users with the add-on CoolPreview are hearing the stupid thing on a loop.

Disable the CoolPreview add-on to stop the theme music.

Tools
Add-Ons
Find CoolPreviews in your list and choose Disable

CoolPreviews now has an update, which I'm pretty certain was prompted by this issue, but I do not know if it solves it.

To update your CoolPreviews Add-On:

1. Tools -> Add-Ons
2. Once the new window opens, click the Find Updates button at the bottom.
3. Firefox will update the Add-On, then ask you to restart the program.
