Re: Resolved as far as possible, I think: was: Re: "Invisible" files on /tmp from Flash or Iceweasel?
Thanks, that is helpful, I can now find the Flash files with your command and
a little grepping:
lsof +aL1 /tmp | grep Flash
But, I guess I still cannot delete that file as long as that tab in Iceweasel
(the one to view that video) is open...
But, thanks, I've learned a little more!
