(maybe this relates only to web pages with flash)

I have some bookmark menus on the 'Personal Toolbar' that are folders with many
bookmarks in them.

If I view the above URL, then click on one of the bookmark folders, I notice
that a sound is played as I move the pointer up and down the bookmarks. This
only happens when the pointer is over part of the web page that would make this
noise, ie when it is over the small 'window' just below the login 'window' on
the top left hand side of the web page.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.make a bookmark folder on your personal toolbar that has a large number of
bookmarks in it, such that, when you open the folder, the selection menu drops
down over a large portion of the web page.
2.view the above web page in the browser
3.notice that, as you move the pointer over the text "profile", "Pucca's Room",
and "News", a "Pucca Icon" appears, and a sound plays.
4.if you now open the bookmark folder that you have carefully positioned to drop
down over that window, the same things happen as if there was no bookmark menu
was there.

Actual Results:  
things happen on the web page depending on the position of the pointer, when the
bookmark menu is selected

Expected Results:  
nothing should happen on the web page when selecting a bookmark

This still occurs using Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US;
rv:1.7.7) Gecko/20050414 Firefox/1.0.3.

I stumbled across another interesting method of reproducing this bug on OS X:

1. Open a few windows including a Firefox window with the test case
(http://puccaclub.com/eng/) loaded.
2. With the Firefox window active engage All Windows in Exposé (F9 if you have
the default key bindings) to get a zoomed out view of all the windows you have open.
3. Mouseover the same screen coordinates where the links that produce the bleep
sound were before the Firefox window was zoomed out to a new location in the
Exposé view.

You'll find the sounds being triggered as if the Firefox window was still active
and in it's original location.  Also the cursor will switch to the link
("pointer finger") cursor.

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that
bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are
highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce
this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a
copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and
you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
Thank you for your help in this matter.
