Damm even I am having a similar kind of issue, I have searched all over the internet and even have posted on number of threads on different forum, no solution seems to work. I am really frustrated, can anyone of you here help me resolve this issue, I am very much tired now.

I had the same issue too and I searched everywhere, in a lot of other forums, but nothing shows how to solve it

If you start qBittorrent from terminal, like so:
$ qbittorrent

And you see a lot of lines/text coming out. If you go to Search, and do the double-click, do you see anything relevant in the terminal?
- qBittorrent team - server and forum administrator.
- Hungarian translation reviewer/moderator (+ translator).

I also have the same bug, using qBittorrent v4.1.6 on Ubuntu Studio.
Did as requested:
1. started qbittorrent from the command line
2. search for torrent
3. double click
4. torrent goes to pink, but transfer does not start
5. nothing new appears on the console (some previous messages, when starting up, were saying "Theme parsing error"

I have also checked:
~/.local/share/data/qBittorrent/
and there are not torrent files there.
And I have also checked:
~/.local/share/data/qBittorrent/logs/qbittorrent.log
and there is nothing abnormal there

There are a few search plug-ins that do not return the correct data. If right-click > Download doesn't seem to work, then use right-click > Open description page. A tracker page will open in browser and there should be download buttons there for .torrent files and/or magnet links. If those don't work then either there's something wrong with those pages or the browser has issues sending the links to the associated applications (if any).

Dunno if there's a section dedicated to bug reports for plug-ins - you may search for one and ask for the respective plug-in(s) to be updated.
