Version 17.0.1
How to reproduce:
- Open a jar file with FireFox in your local file system
- Locate the jar file in Windows explorer
- Try to delete the jar file

Expected behavior: The file should be deleted
Actual behavior: The file cannot be deleted

Example jar file:
http://repo1.maven.org/maven2/org/glassfish/javax.ejb/3.0/javax.ejb-3.0-sources.jar

You may want to use Process Explorer to identify the process that locks the file.

I have seen similar issues with other software - some libraries make it difficult to close a jar file depending on how it is opened.
