SOLVED: Firefox and magnet
Actually it didn't work for me that way as the suggested is for FF up to 3.5. I followed these instruction:


In about:config -- Right-click -> New -> Boolean -> Name: network.protocol-handler.expose.magnet -> Value -> false
Next time I click on a magnet link it asked me which applicatoion to use.


I managed to fix this. I think the first answer in second post is correct. On mobile now so cant check

I was trying to download a file through a magnet link. *It works on my other
machine but on a new installation of 12.04 (4.8.3) I have the following pop-up
in Firefox:

* * * *"Firefox doesn't know how to open this address, because the protocol
(magnet) isn't associated with any program."

Didn't find anything meaningful while googling. Any ideas? *I am using
KTorroent as a client.
