Why do I have to close Firefox first every time I want to eject my USB drive? Why in the world Firefox wants to mess up with my USB drive?? This is my USB drive, not theirs!! Why? Why????

I don't know the answer, but perhaps you have the USB drive path set as a default download location? Maybe searching the about:config for E:\ will show a setting using that path?

I don't bother with all that rigmarole. I just wait a few seconds for any write caching to finish and then pull it out. Never had a problem yet with corrupted files when I do this. I use NTFS so that may help to eliminate such problems. Using FAT can possibly cause lost clusters, not sure.

all my downloads are strictly on the HDD. I am a cautious guy. This has been going with Firefox only and on many PCs on different version of windows. That's strange. Never have problems with IE or Chrome. Someone mentioned about "handle" to me some time ago. I don't know what he meant by that. Does firefox listen to USB port as well?

This happens when the drive is empty as well. Now I have mostly legitimate installers on the drive - devcpp, codeblocks, fasm of all sorts, some pdfs, pelles C, jdk, governor of poker, open office docs and that's about it.

Um.. Just pull it out. LOL Firefox wouldn't jump out of your PC to take it, right? Smile

I see a lot of fear demonstrated here in this thread. Your OS tells you that a USB drive is not safe to remove so you all panic and wonder how to make it safe. Hehe, no understanding is what drives fear. Don't simply trust everything your OS tells you. Your OS was programmed by people, not gods. Your OS does not know everything. Your OS is something to be conquered, not feared or blindly obeyed. Don't be a servant to your OS, be its master.

And if you use Windows it was programmed by M$. Well, I don't really understand that safe to remove BS,
On Linux that command simply unmounts the device and makes it inaccessible to applications, God knows what Windows does with it's safe[sic] to remove.
