Firefox holds open filehandle for files uploaded via forms
Just noticed this one; Firefox seems to hold open a filehandle for any file I try to upload to a form; it even seems to open a new one if I upload the same file twice, meaning it can hold open many filehandles to the same file! This obviously prevents you renaming, deleting, etc. the file; Firefox should release the filehandle immediately. To reproduce, go to: http://library.loudoun.gov/Default.aspx?tabid=278 type in email@example.com as email address, upload a file (I uploaded a simple .csv). Use Process Explorer NT to check for open handles to that filename. Firefox should be holding open a handle to that file. My FF build ID: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-GB; rv:184.108.40.206) Gecko/2008070208 Firefox/3.0.1
