Can you post your code which you use to start browser. It looks like its not a webdriver issue. Main error you are facing here is "The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process"

We need to figure out what is causing this.

It looks like your selenium Webdriver is not compatible with your Firefox WebDriver.

Few things I would suggest:

Downgrade your selenium WebDriver from 3.4.0 to 3.3.0

Or

Also, you can upgrade your Firefox browser to the latest version and update your gecko driver as well.
