[INFO]magnet in the new firefox

When you try to open a magnet-download(torrent) link in the new firefox it won't work.
Here is how you can fix it:
type above in the adressbar

Code: Select all

about:config
right-click and select new
type in

Code: Select all

network.protocol-handler.expose.magnet
under type you select boolean and under value false
Now firefox understand that you will open a torrent-file with your type of software you use for torrent downloads.
