Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: firefox-3.0

I uploaded a file from my camera's CF card to a web site.  I chose it
with the GTK file picker.  Then a few minutes later I wanted to unmount
the CF card, but kio_umountwrapper couldn't do it, because it said
Firefox still had the file (or maybe the directory) open.

As I write this, Firefox still hasn't released the file.

Firefox should release the file as soon as it has finished uploading it.

** Affects: firefox-3.0 (Ubuntu)
     Importance: Undecided
         Status: New

** Description changed:

  Binary package hint: firefox-3.0

- After a few more minutes of browsing and stuff, Firefox finally let go
- and I was able to unmount it.
