Fixes for "one of Firefox's files is in use by another app" don't work. What to do?

Pridané

Firefox complains about places.sqlite being inaccessible. It says: "The bookmarks and history system will not be functional because one of Firefox's files is in use by another application. Some security software can cause this problem."

0. yesterday it worked without issue

1. I use no security apps that could lock files, I don't think my file system supports locking

2. after deleting places.sqlite Firefox recreates it and still displays the error

3. rebooting doesn't help

4. I use bleachbit to remove temporary files and vacuum sqlite databases automatically

5. I can open places.sqlite and browse it with sqlite3 without issues so it's not broken

6. I have 644 permissions on places.sqlite so +rw for the same user that runs Firefox

Any suggestions? How come Firefox can create a file but complains about accessing it? Can this message be displayed in case of another file missing?

Fixed it by completely removing ~/.mozilla folder in my home directory and running Firefox in normal mode, then logging into Sync and letting it download everything.

No idea why it worked, though. Maybe Firefox couldn't access some other file, not `places.sqlite`, but didn't communicate the issue properly. Nevertheless, solved.

Yes, problem is still there in safe mode. Also removing the `places.sqlite` and starting the browser in safe mode makes it create a new file and still complain about it being locked.
