BleachBit - Says Can't Clean Firefox Open

I'm running the latest BleachBit in Linux found here;

I'm also running the latest Tor Browser Bundle 2.2.35-3

When I had the browser running and Firefox closed, BleachBit said it could not clean because Firefox was open. Not sure why something like this should happen since the Tor Browser Bundle should be it's own self-contained unit that other apps like this should not be seeing it as Firefox.

If this happening in Linux, probably Windows too.

Please see the attached image.

Milestone: TorBrowserBundle 2.2.x-stable
Priority: majorminor

Interop testing like this will require community support at this point.

Also, this sounds like an inherent property of Windows that BleachBit should learn to work with: You can't modify files that are currently opened by apps.

I re-read the summary and it occurred to me that you might be trying to point out there is a disk leak issue in Tor Browser in that it is touching the normal Firefox's files?

If that is the case, this might be a dup of #4338 and/or a related disk leak.
