Every time I want to download a torrent file, I get this message:

File not found

Firefox can't find the file at magnet:?xt=urn:btih:11b4c485eda4a9dbd75605a3006cf8b38605dd8c&dn.........//tracker.openbittorrent.com:80&tr=udp://open.demonii.com:1337&tr=udp://tracker.coppersurfer.tk:6969&tr=udp://exodus.desync.com:6969.

   Check the file name for capitalization or other typing errors.
   Check to see if the file was moved, renamed or deleted.

Even though I was able to download it on other computers ..

Please first make sure that the duplicated plugins are not causing any security issues in your profile.

Second check to see if there any add ons that handle these kinds of links check them out in addons.mozilla.org.

However if it was working before, sometimes a refresh can restart:

The Refresh feature (called "Reset" in older Firefox versions) can fix many issues by restoring Firefox to its factory default state while saving your bookmarks, history, passwords, cookies, and other essential information.

Note: When you use this feature, you will lose any extensions, toolbar customizations, and some preferences. See the Refresh Firefox - reset add-ons and settings article for more information.

To Refresh Firefox:

  1. Open the Troubleshooting Information page using one of these methods:
    • Click the menu button New Fx Menu, click help Help-29 and select Troubleshooting Information. A new tab containing your troubleshooting information should open.
    • If you're unable to access the Help menu, type about:support in your address bar to bring up the Troubleshooting Information page.
  2. At the top right corner of the page, you should see a button that says "Refresh Firefox" ("Reset Firefox" in older Firefox versions). Click on it.
  3. Firefox will close. After the refresh process is completed, Firefox will show a window with the information that is imported.
  4. Click Finish and Firefox will reopen.
