Downloading magnet links

  • Hi, I've just been upgraded to v25 (I didn't ask for it!)

    Now I can't download .magnet links which automatically open in qbittorrent, magnet links are associated with the program but when I click on a magnet nothing happens.

    I can copy and paste the link but I want to be able to just click on the link and Qbittorrent appears.

    Cheers

  • Associate "magnet links" with "qbittorrent", this is not a Opera issue. (In German BS: Systemsteuerung | Standardprogramme | Standardprogramme festlegen...)

    What Opera version did you have before the upgrade?

    Magnet links are just that, links. They're not files that can be associated with softwares from the OS so it is an opera issue since only it can provide the association.

    They can be associated to softwares. Some of them ask it when being installed.
