    Just try - as in once- FF in its Safe Mode. That's not Windows Safe Mode.

    A quick search will tell you how. Means no add-ons enabled e.g.

    nope, SAFE MODE and a click on a torrent link still opens that stupid Win 10 wanting an APP TO OPEN and FF still has the "Always ask you where to save filesask me" checked.

    These dialogue boxes are very different. I'm pretty sure this is an FF issue- best refer to Mozilla.
    Please can you confirm that is the dialogue box displayed by FF when you click on the torrent link. Thanks.

    I searched for
    Firefox launch application downloads
    Change what Firefox does when you click on or download a file | Firefox Help

    I would like to every time. Is that possible? | Firefox Support Forum | Mozilla Support
