can't "Save" torrent file

i am not sure what to call this issue, so if its already posted please forgive me for a small search i did

NO torrent files will save or open for me
i click the torrent link and it opens the pop up box asking what i want to do
(in the past i always click OK to open in bit comet)
ok is not highlighted only cancel is
if i switch to save torrent (so i can manually open it) ok is still not a option i can click

any ideas?
running firefox latest version on a pc
thanks

EDIT - just found out that i can not save a torrent anywhere
this must have something to do with firefox updating this morning when i started it up

Click a couple times where the OK should be.

this works. I am so glad I learned that here. They need to fix Firefox. It's done this for a couple of versions now.

Re: can't "Save" torrent file

^ Yep, its done it to me as well. Although, when it wouldn't let me save the torrent file, I just navigated to another directory and it allowed me to download it....

Perhaps firefox is racist and doesn't like torrent files?

naw it does it with all kinds of files. mpg, wmv, etc. at random times. I don't think it's a security thing. I'm thinking bug.

Re: can't "Save" torrent file

It's a bug that has existed for a long time. I can't remember if I've seen this happen on my kid's PCs or if it's only a Mac bug.
