Ok, maybe somebody can shed some light on this one..

A few days ago I was toying with adding some sound to our splash page.. so I was playing with some of the Sound settings etc.
Finally I settled on using the mini Mp3 player from
(but that's not the problem.. that's actually a very nice and small footprint player..)

However, at some point, I must have changed something somewhere because now I have the following ODD behavior:

Whenever GP's RadEditor is fired up, either when doing an edit on a Free HTML box, or doing a Fourm Edit, or sending an Email, the sound file is played as well...

I have reviewed CSS, page settings, flushed my cache etc to no avail.
This appears to happen only in FF (thou I think its not for lack of trying in IE, I think just because IE is not reading the file from FTP correctly, I may try to change the hosting)

It also seems to happen only when I use our 'domain name' links, as opposed to entering the site via standard domain (for example, the sound did NOT play as i entered the radEditor in this community forum to write this post..

This one really has me dumbfounded ..   Any ideas are welcome...

After toying around with Fiddler, I have found that what RadEditor is doing is apparently loading all my Tabs in the background.. So there are additional requests for images, etc.
I just happened to notice it after adding the sound file to my splash page, but in fact there's a whole lot of additional requests going in the back...

It seems to happen only in FF, not in IE..

Any ideas?

I took a look at the player and I can't figure out why it won't play on IE either. At first I thought maybe it was because the <embed> tag was missing, but that didn't help... the demo page works fine on IE... I'm at a loss as well
