Opera not releasing the lock on files

  • In all releases since Opera 12.x, if you are using Webmail and attach a file to an email, the file lock is not released afterwards. If the file is on a USB drive, you cannot eject the drive. if the file is in a local directory on your machine, you cannot delete the file nor the directory. I have not tried this on other platforms nor have I tried it with Chrome. This is an annoying bug to say the least.

  • I can't reproduce this in Opera 20 @ Yahoo! Mail.
