I doubt it would be your machine because i would think if it was it would do the same no matter what browser you are using.

Windows 7, RTM x64

It is very strange, I just did a full scan of Ad-Aware, and after updating the database did a bootscan from Avast.

Nothing. So honestly, i have no idea what is going on =(

Windows Home Premium 7 32bit

I have the same problem. Stuttering sound when browsing with Firefox or Chrome, in Firefox it seems a bit more severe.

I found out about DPC Latency Checker, which you can find here: DPC Latency Checker

Run it, browse, and if you see red spikes, something is wrong with one of your drivers. It's somehow interfering with your CPU causing the distorted sound.

Then try to deactivate devices in device manager one by one to see which one is the cause.

In my case it was Norton Internet security 2011! I uninstalled it and alle the hickups and red spikes are gone. Sound playing nice. Now going for Kaspersky 2012 which does not seem to have this issue.
