Where can i change the default programs opener in firefox ?

more options

So this is the second time i find myself in the support seccion of firefox, and i have to say i loved the support i got from the first one and thats why i'm back. My problem now is , i recently uninstalled utorrent because it was giving me to much work to get the downloads, so now i have Vuze which works just fine, my problem is , i had the magnet icon on pirate bay directing me to utorrent, but now that i dont have it just doesnt do anything. My question is, how do i change the default program opener to vuze ?

Thanks for the support, and keep up the good work, to all the firefox support crew i wish a good day :)

Hello CoutoFireMan, see the "Adding download actions" it is in "Adding, removing, or editing a download action" area inside the link Gingerbread_Man gave us.

Usually, the torrent client must be associated with the magnet protocol either in its settings window, or in the Windows Control Panel, Default Programs section.

If no program is associated with that protocol, Firefox will ask you which program you want to use to open the link.

If another torrent client is set to open magnet links in Firefox, you can change that under Options - Applications.

so , i tried the windows default program, and it says that the .torrent and .magnet are both opened by default by vuze. So i tried the second option and in the firefox , in the applications tab i find no extension that can be used by vuze, and so i send you a few print screens. If they are of any help let me know, thanks again for the support and speed of the answer

I have a similar problem. The default for .torrent is vuze but I have no section or selection for a .magnet. Does this mean I can't use it or it won't work eith my computer? * I have an Acer Aspire one (notebook)

You must first try to open a magnet link before it shows up under Options/Preferences - Applications. Again, this is explained in the "Adding download actions" section of the following article.
