I have opened a ticket where the server is hosted, and asked them if that file locking could be possible. And referred them to this topic.
The underlying library, is compiled into the mod? I couldn't see a separate dll for it.
Firefox , yeah can be a pita. I suggest to create a new profile, https://support.mozi...irefox-profiles
You can just create a new one, and see if it helps, before deleting the old one. And besides that I noticed firefox to crash lots on some flash ads. Really annoying stuff, if you have to incorporate those ads on a website and your browser is constantly crashing, after 2-3 refreshes of the site.
edit: They replied,
It may be that our systems were performing a backup at the time, or something similar. That would have to be very unusual timing, though. Does that file store data using sqlite? If so, all file writes *and* reads to/from that file would be denied while it is in use, except for the process that is using it.
Since I couldn't rename/delete that file (cause its windows server), I suppose ET had it locked for its own use.
