Reproducible: Always

1. Create simple form with file upload. 
2. use the form to upload a file
3. run Process Explorer from sysinternals
4. Inspect firefox.exe's open files, see uploaded file there being open
Actual Results:  
File is kept open forever

Expected Results:  
File should be closed as soon as upload was done
