User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.3b) Gecko/20030210 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.3b) Gecko/20030210 Often, when I am in a web page that can be backed up from, and I go back using CMD-LEFT_ARROW to do so, Mozilla loads the previous page, and causes a system beep at the same time. This behavior SEEMS to happen most often when I am at the end of the list (i.e., there is no place to which I can go "forward" short of clicking a link or the like). It does not seem to happen nearly as often when in the middle of the list. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1.Click through a series of links. (Say, http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/ then click "College Basketball" then click a story) 2.Using CMD-LEFT_ARROW to go back, back up to the most recent previous page 3.listen for the system beep Actual Results: I hear the System Beep (on my machine, it's ChuToy) Expected Results: I don't think it should be beeping! Nothing is going wrong (I don't think!) This is Mac OS X, 10.2.3 (build 6G30).
Hm. Interestingly, if I get this behavior, then clicking on the "Forward" button in the toolbar, but NOT the CMD-RIGHT_ARROW shortcut, also causes a system beep. If I click the "Back" button, but don't use CMD-LEFT_ARROW to go back, it doesn't beep. If I have found a page on which it beeps, it always beeps. Try this combination: http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/ Click "College Basketball" Click "Cal's Shipp sailing toward scoring title" (http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/basketball/college/news/2003/02/12/thisweek_pac10/) then try back with keyboard.
Do you have popup blocking on? It might be the sound notification for a popup being swallowed. Check your prefs.
That indeed was the culprit. HOWEVER. _I_ did not enable this pref. I have had popup blocking enabled ever since I heard about it. I _just_ upgraded from Mozilla 1.2.1 to 1.3b. I did NOT have this setting enabled before (I don't recall that it was available before, but that may be because I had it deselected and didn't worry about it). If this is a new pref item, and is enabled by default (perhaps, only if popup blocking was enabled prior to upgrading?), that's probably the WrongThing(tm) to do. If this is not a new pref item, then it was somehow re-enabled without user input, and that is absolutely the WrongThing(tm) to do. My other preferences and settings seem to be the same, so I don't believe it's either a botched upgrade (how botched can drag-and-drop of one file be?) or a bug in Moz for general upgrading. Changed component to Preferences to account for this information.

Agreed :) I and others started have gone through this same tribulation. We even started trying to debug it. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 192768 ***
