Magnet Links Not Going To qBittorrent

the below are quotes from a thread i started on the qbittorrent forum. any suggestions on fixing this issue would be greatly appreciated. thanks

09012019 the day before yesterday i had a handful of updates in kubuntu which seemed to break deluge. no matter what i tried i could not get deluge to work properly, so i completely removed it and reinstalled qbittorrent which i've used before. the issue is i go to a page and click a magnet link and i get the indicator that it's being processed but when i open qbt the item has not been added. as far as i know i've gotten rid of every trace of deluge so i doubt leftovers of it are causing the issue. any suggestions on fixing this would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

09012019 fixed. went back into file association and since it was not showing me x-bittorrent i decided to create a simple torrent entry. this forced x-bittorrent to finally show. was then able to switch .torrent to open with qbt and add a .magnet entry. works perfectly now.

09122019 ok this issues seems to have returned. since my second post there have been a lot of updates and looks like at least one of them keeps breaking my fix. after a series of updates yesterday once again when i click on a magnet link i get the indicator to suggest an application is going to open but the qbittorrent dialog box never comes up. now if i click a torrent link and click open on the dialog box that pops up the qbt dialog box box will pop up allowing me to add the torrent to qbt. the indicator that pops up on the cursor when i click a magnet link is the one for deluge. i really don't understand this since i uninstalled deluge completely, and used kfind and catfish to find and remove all traces of deluge. please any help with fixing this would be greatly appreciated. thanks
