file association


ive sucessfully installed bitorrent but when i opened the first link and the dialogue box opened up i opted to save the file and 'always do this'. SO now i hav e the .torrent file and not the avi.

I think I should have opened it from its current location.

How do I reset this option?

So where talking Konqueror? Mozilla? It seems your reffering to clicking on a .torrent file link, but what browser?

Im clicking on a torrent link using mozilla.

The first time I checked the save option instead of 'open using application' and ticked the 'always do this'.

So I would like to reset that so I can change the 'always do this' to open the file instead of saving it.

Well with Mozilla ( not Firefox) goto the menu Edit->Prefrences

Then select In the left hand column Navigator->Helper Applications. This should list the file-types and what to do with them, either edit or remove the option set for torrent files.
