You aren't pointing the torrent file to the correct folder. You are listed as a leecher, not a seeder. So, stop the torrent, remove it from Azureus, then add it back in but point it to the correct folder.

Then you must have Azureus set up to always save your downloads in a particular folder. So, you need to move this folder (with the files from the torrent) into that Download folder (before putting the torrent into Azureus again) or else turn off the option to automatically save in the same Download folder all the time.

It doesn't have to do with firefox. Go into the Options of Azureus. Go to Files and at the top it says "Default directory" and then under there a checkbox for "Automatically download to default directory (No Prompt)" I would guess you have that box checked. So, the easiest thing to do would be to stop your torrent, move the folder that you made the torrent out of INTO the directory listed as the "Default directory" (you will probably have to remove the one that is there that Azureus created when it thought you were a leech) and then start the torrent again and do a right-click "Force Re-check" on it. It will then go through and verify that the files are all complete and then go into seed mode.

That means that when you created the torrent file, you accidentally left the text file (or another file) open in an application OR you changed a file after you made the torrent.

So, I would close all the files, make a new torrent of the folder, and then upload that torrent. Then, hit the Report this Post button, http://www.thetradersden.org/forums/images/buttonsttd/report.gif, on the old torrent and ask the mods to remove it. (This will also put your torrent back on the front page and get people to notice it again. :D )

Yes, just start over, but make sure you don't have any of the files 'open' in any application when you make the torrent.
