I can NOT empty trash because "org.mozilla.firefox.plist" is in use?

Posted

I can't find anything on my computer that describes "org.mozilla.firefox.plist" I am not allowed to empty my trash because of the above message. Where can I find mozilla firefox playlist so I can turn it off and delete it?

A plist (property list) file is a special file in Mac OS that stores application specific data. Go to "~/Library/Preferences" and remove the plist file for Firefox (org.mozilla.firefox.plist)

In Mac OS X v10.7 and later, the ~/Library folder in the Home directory is a hidden folder.
