Firefox crashes when I click on magnet link. HELP!


This problem has been happening for a while. When I go to a website and click on a magnet link, firefox just crashes. It just comes up saying firefox has stopped responding and has to close. I'm trying to open the magnet link via utorrent. It says that you should update your download application (uTorrent) to fix crashes. I did and it still does it.
