View Full Version : Irritating Firefox/Firebug bug locks uploaded files

10-03-2009, 02:26 PM
I am having an irritating experience with Firefox 3 (on Vista), where it will lock a file I have uploaded causing other programs trying to write to the file to fail.

The problem is documented in this bug report (by someone else), but it doesn't seem to have been resolved: http://code.google.com/p/fbug/issues/detail?id=1468

Had anyone else had this problem?

Haven't experienced that problem myself, but in the meantime you could close Firefox's open handle to that file.

Download ProcessExplorer (sysinternals), find the file you are looking for and close Firefox's handle.
