How does one specify command line switches for a Helper Application in Mozilla Firefox?
I would like to have a certain batch file to be executed when downloading torrent files unfortunately the Select Helper Application dialog does not allow to add command line switches. I did find a workaround to achieve this. In the Select Helper Application dialog browse to the folder which contains the batch file, type the file name including the file extension of the batch file and click on Open.
Though, this is not the way I would like to execute the batch file. I need to pass some additional command line switches to the command interpreter but I cannot seem to find a way how. Any suggestions or clarifications would be much appreciated.
Thanks for your time, Joeri

This is possibly slightly off topic for this forum as it relates to something more than the standard use of Firefox. Although I do not know the answer myself someone else may post later. Otherwise try somewhere else my suggestions are:
- The mozillazine fora tend to discuss a wider range of subjects and technical details
- Also it may be worth asking on the Add-on forum
- Note a general information kb relating to downloads is
- and for anyone with simpler questions What to do if you can't download or save files
If you do solve this I hope you post back with the answer and a link to the relevant information.
Good luck with finding a solution, John
