Unhappy Downloading torrents with Firefox

I'm having trouble downloading torrents from this site specifically for some reason now. I am using Firefox version 2.0.0.3. It had worked previously and to my knowledge I've done nothing to impair this. What happens is when I click on the .torrent link it opens the page in a new tab and displays the save dialog; yet the "OK" button is greyed out and so I cannot save. I am wondering if this is somehow due to the redirection. Any ideas?

Yep, that's what I have to do - I just click a couple times where the OK is supposed to be 'clickable'. I'm not sure when it started happening, but it was a few upgrades ago. I keep hoping they will fix it, but it still continues to be that way.

Lynne- are you having problems with just torrent files? or other types too, just curious?

Hmmmm, I'm not really certain right now. I'll have to pay more attention, but I know it isn't only on TTD that I've seen this happen. It's been happening for so long now that I don't really pay attention to it anymore.

Oh, well I guess it isn't just me then. The double clicking suggestion worked, but it's pretty dumb that you need to do that in the first place. I knew I should've stuck with Opera! :argh:

Happens to me sometimes too. I click the select program from the list and browse to my torrent client. I bet you could clear the history of program associations and redo it and it would work. I haven't had the time to play around with it so I browse each time.....

Re: Downloading torrents with Firefox

I've had that happen forever, too. I re-did the file associations once but it didn't help. I tried a few different trackers just for fun:

Opens straight in utorrent:
DAD
OneMoreSolo
etree
PureLiveGigs

Open with... greyed OK:
Zomb
Tapecity
JamToThis

Opens in (temporary) new tab, greyed OK:
TTD

Using XP SP2, FF 2.0.0.3 and uTorrent 1.6 build 474.

Re: Downloading torrents with Firefox

I just downloaded a torrent from here and the OK wasn't greyed out. So, this appears to be intermittent.

It must be because it's greyed out for me. Thanks for the keep pushing ok trick. That works.
