Thread: Downloading Torrents Using uTorrent? My Settings Got Messed Up

  1. #1
    Obviously, in the past, when I click to downloaded a torrent, it would automatically use uTorrent to download the file. Something happened in the last day or so, but now when I click on the download link, it asks me where to save the torrent file on my computer. How do I revert it? I thought I knew how, but I guess I don't!

    Thanks, but that didn't work, either. Isn't it a firefox setting? I want it to send it to uTorrent directly when I click the "click here to download this movie" button.

    In uTorrent go to preferences->general and in windows integration tick the box that says "Check association on startup". This will keep uTorrent associated with .torrent files whenever uTorrent starts.

    You could also follow the above but click on "associate with .torrent files" instead but this will not keep uTorrent associated with .torrent files if another application changes it.
