Your problem is not very clear to me. You obviously have the PDF files open in 
Frescobaldi, but what is the other application you open them in?

If you are reopening them each time in a PDF viewer like Adobe Acrobat or such, 
then perhaps the problem is that you did not save the LilyPond file in 
Frescobaldi? If you don't save it, Frescobaldi
creates a temporary file in an invisible place, compiles that and displays the 
result PDF, without affecting the PDF that is next to the (out of date) .ly 

I guess you are working on Windows, since the inability to delete a file while 
it is open in an application is a limitation of Windows. Nothing we can do 
about that.
