Greetings.Every time I try to download any torrent file browser asks what program to use. I always press open with Mutorrent and press button use as default program but every time I try to download it alwas ask same.I try a lot of things and nothing seems to help. Very annoying because instead of one click you need to do it 3 times and wait a delay.

Are these custom protocol links like torrent://hostserver/path/file or are they regular https links with a specific file extension like .torrent?

Can you go to the section of the Options page that stores downloading preference and confirm that torrent links are set to "Use Mutorrent" and not "Always Ask". See the following article for more information on where that is:

Manage file types and download actions in Firefox

If that's already set up:

Custom Protocol Links

Hmm, I wonder what's going wrong there.

File extension

Firefox doesn't rely on the file extension to determine behavior, it relies on the Content-Type indicated by the server. If the server sends a generic or incorrect content type then Firefox will show the download dialog.

Even if the server sends the correct content type, it can set Content-Disposition: attachment to force a download and Firefox will always show the download dialog in that case.

There are some add-ons that could help with these issues, if these are the problem.
