Firefox and qBitorrent download pop-up issue

Post by lEtranger1942 » Wed Jan 15, 2020 6:28 pm

The issue I'm having is the following.

I switched from Chrome to Firefox a few days ago.

When trying to download torent files I have the pop-up as to what I want to do with the .torrent file.

Each time I download a .torrent file I need to browse for qBitorrent in order to open it.

I'm on Windows and I have .torrent association with qBitorrent from Control Panel as well as .torrent association in the Applications options on Firefox nonetheless Firefox does not seem to remember qBitorrent as the default .torrent opening client.

I have to mention I do not have this issue when using Chrome or Opera.

Does anybody have a fix for this ?

Best way i found to fix this issue is to go into qBT options > downloads tab and add your main download folder in the auto detect.

This way you can just save the files and qBT will open it automatically.
