Some .exe setup files won't open when downloaded by Firefox but work fine when grabbed by Edge
Hello! I'm on Windows 11 and when trying to update QBittorrent, if I download the last setup.exe from it's official source with Firefox, the file won't open. No error message, no crash, nothing. No amount of double click or "run as admin" will get it to budge. I've had the problem with the last three versions of QBittorrent.
However, when I download the same .exe from the same website with Microsoft Edge, it runs like a charm and I'm able to update QBittorent.
What's weird is that it's not even consistent; I always get that bug with QBittorrent but the other .exe files I downloaded run just fine. I only use Windows Defender for malware protection and it doesn't see the QBittorrent file as a menace. I tried downloading the file to another location than my desktop but the issue persists.
Is there something I can do to fix this?
Have a nice day!
