If you want to see what files, registry keys and other resources are used by the running Firefox process on Windows 8, you can use the Windows Sysinternals Handle as shown below:

1. Run Firefox first.

2. Start a command line window by run "Command Prompt" as administator.

3. Type in the following Handle command:

C:\fyicenter\Handle\Handle -a firefox.exe
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
firefox.exe pid: 5484 fyicenter\fyi
