I'm on firefox. I'm just on facebook and gmail. This long beep happens but no error message. I notice that one of my cooling pads fan turned off. . .could this be the reason for the beep? (there are 3 fans on the cooling pad, only 1 turned off)

Laptop cooling pad that a laptop sits on to increase airflow. Non specific example below:

Some/all systems will have an alarm installed for detected overheating.

The nature of the alarm...I would expect to vary but my experience is that the control for such is among the BIOS/CMOS settings.

You might check your motherboard/user manual.
