OpenFileDialog from IE 10 lock up file RRS feed

  • Question

  • I ran into this issue (bug?) that I hope this is the correct forum to ask question.  

    I noticed if selecting a file from IE (I am using IE 10 on Windows 8) via the common file open dialog box, the selected file handles are not release after the dialog box is closed.  This causes the selected files are locked up.  Now, if I use FireFox or Chrome, the file handles are release as soon as the dialog box is closed.  I confirmed this is indeed the case using Process Explorer and noticed the file handles just linger around until I close IE or the session or select another file.  

    This is quite an important issue as I need to make sure another application that I'm working on is able to modify and save the files without being forced to saved as different name, nor can I ask my users to close or stop using IE.

    I tend to think this is probably an issue in IE but i just want to know if there is a workaround/solution and I'm a bit surprised I couldn't find this issue is being reported anywhere in MSDN forums nor public domain. 

    Thanks in advance.
