File Holder::Release does I/O on the main thread
I got a 3-second main thread hang on Windows with the following stack. I think I triggered it by closing a YouTube tab. Would it be possible to do the file remove off the main thread, perhaps using OS.File? NtClose (in wntdll.pdb) nsLocalFile::Remove(bool) (in xul.pdb) CachedFileHolder::~CachedFileHolder() (in xul.pdb) CachedFileHolder::`scalar deleting destructor'(unsigned int) (in xul.pdb) CachedFileHolder::Release() (in xul.pdb) nsRefPtr<CachedFileHolder>::~nsRefPtr<CachedFileHolder>() (in xul.pdb) nsPluginStreamListenerPeer::~nsPluginStreamListenerPeer() (in xul.pdb) nsPluginStreamListenerPeer::`vector deleting destructor'(unsigned int) (in xul.pdb) nsPluginStreamListenerPeer::Release() (in xul.pdb) DoDeferredRelease<nsISupports *> (in xul.pdb) XPCJSRuntime::GCCallback(JSRuntime *,JSGCStatus) (in xul.pdb) Collect (in mozjs.pdb) js::GCSlice(JSRuntime *,js::JSGCInvocationKind,JS::gcreason::Reason,__int64) (in mozjs.pdb) js_InvokeOperationCallback(JSContext *) (in mozjs.pdb) js_HandleExecutionInterrupt(JSContext *) (in mozjs.pdb) js::mjit::stubs::Interrupt(js::VMFrame &,unsigned char *) (in mozjs.pdb) From a source comment: "When a plugin requests opens multiple requests to the same URL and the request must be satified by saving a file to disk, each stream listener holds a reference to the backing file: the file is only removed when all the listeners are done."

Lookup of the cached files is via existing peers in nsPluginStreamListenerPeer::SetupPluginCacheFile() and falls back to creating a new file with CreateUnique(). So this seems safe to me.
