When using process explorer srom sysinternals i saw that mozilla hade file
handles on the following files.

File	C:\WINNT\system32\QuickTime\QuickTimeWebHelper.qtx
File	C:\WINNT\system32\QuickTime\QuickTimeWebHelper.qtx
File	C:\WINNT\system32\QuickTime\QuickTimeWebHelper.qtx
File	C:\WINNT\system32\QuickTime\QuickTimeWebHelper.qtx
File	C:\WINNT\system32\QuickTime\QuickTimeWebHelper.qtx
File	C:\WINNT\system32\QuickTime\QuickTimeWebHelper.qtx
File	C:\WINNT\system32\QuickTime\QuickTimeWebHelper.qtx
File	C:\WINNT\system32\QuickTime\QuickTimeWebHelper.qtx
File	C:\WINNT\system32\QuickTime\QuickTimeWebHelper.qtx
File	C:\WINNT\system32\QuickTime\QuickTimeWebHelper.qtx
File	C:\WINNT\system32\QuickTime\QuickTimeWebHelper.qtx
File	C:\WINNT\system32\QuickTime\QuickTimeWebHelper.qtx
File	C:\WINNT\system32\QuickTime.qts
File	C:\WINNT\system32\QuickTime.qts

This seems like it could be a memory leak when having more than one file handle
on the same file.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Watch some quicktime movies on the net in several tabs.
2.
3.

Actual Results:  
There seems to be the number of QuickTimeWebHelper.qtx is the same as the
maximum number of movies i had open in different tabs.

Expected Results:  
Closed the file handles as i closed tha tabs.
