Happens to every one. Don't know what whould be holding on to it besides FireFox. You need to get what ever is holding on to it to let go. There is a great program for doing this called Unlocker download and install it. Then right click the file that you what to delete and there should be in the context menu that pops up called Unlocker, click that select delete.
