Chosen solution

I had this problem and just re-installed Firefox. Problem solved. In my case I believe it was due to installing FlashGet. Though I uninstalled FlashGet, it had pre-empted the Magnet links / protocol. I hope this helps you with your instance. Happily I had the installer for my version of Firefox (7.0.1) saved and used that but you might need to search for your current version or install a later version
