Please provide an URL to such a .torrent file. This is basically no bug if the site either sends the file as application/octet-stream or with a content-disposition:attachment header

I'm using BitTorrent protocol all the time and I didn't find any "valid" site that works properly for more than one year. Torrent file: http://releases.ubuntu.com/11.10/ubuntu-11.10-desktop-amd64.iso.torrent http://tfile.ru/forum/download.php?id=506145&uk=1111111111 All torrent files from sites (really all): http://thepiratebay.se/ http://www.ubuntu.com/download/ubuntu/alternative-download#bt

The decision for for the content-type "application/x-bittorrent" is saved but not used with such a header. >http://releases.ubuntu.com/11.10/ubuntu-11.10-desktop-amd64.iso.torrent This file should work and should use the saved decision.

For me, as a user, it's absolutely doesn't matter, but what can I do in this situation to turn on automatically download and open torrent files without save dialog?
