Subject description: For firefox 50+ and Transmission 2.84
 

Hello y'all, I'm here using Tahrpup 6.0.5 and I always wondered how the heck do I get "magnet" links working with transmission, as firefox is a pile of whatever when it comes to this kind of config, and the help pages aren't helping. I'm here to post the solution to this issue.

First of all. We need to open Firefox.
Once open, you write on the address bar:
Code:
about:config
and we say "yeye whatever".
Then, we right click wherever on that screen and we say "new--> Boolean"
We use as name the following:
Code:
network.protocol-handler.expose.magnet

And we set the value of this boolean to "false".
Once we are done, we restart firefox and we go to any magnet link.
There, FF will prompt us with "what the heck should I do with this?" window, we select a new software, and we go to:

/usr/bin/transmission

Where the binary for transmission is located (if you can't find it, open a terminal and write: "whereis transmission" and it should tell you whereis, crazy, huh?).

And we click on "remember this howdy".

And that's it! All done and set.

Thank you for this - It works in Seamonkey 2.46 which I have updated from 2.19 of the original iso.

I am using Puppy precise 5.7.1

Link to the torrent comes straight up now in Transmission.

I used to have to copy the link location to the clipboard and the open a new URL in Transmission and it was there to add . This is much easier

Thanks also to 01micko , it seems it came from him originally.

Cheers.
