How can I disable the event sound played when a new window is opened?
When Firefox starts, or when a new window is opened there is an annoying click.
How can I disable this?
The only way I have been able to stop it is by disabling all event sounds from the control panel but I'd rather just disable this particular sound.

Firefox has one sound event, for the Find bar, nothing else in the default installation. What did you install into Firefox that added other sounds?
Unless this issue is with Firefox on MacOSX?
No, it's Windows XP. Hmmm, I don't know! I only started noticing it recently and as far as I remember, the only new add on is NoScript. I found the event that was being triggered (Start Connection) and disabled the sound in Windows. So the problem is solved in that I don't have the annoying sound ... but don't know why it started and hope nothing sinister is going on.
Firefox support system sounds on Windows (and Linux), so you need to remove (disable) such sounds in Control Panel > Sounds
Thank you, I've done that now.
