When I try to download a torrent using a magnet link it first opens firefox, and then it opens transmission. Is there a way to fix this? I want chrome to directly open up transmission, not transferring it to firefox.


It’s likely that magnet file-type registration has been changed and Chrome’s default-detection algorithm does not check that. Set Firefox (or another browser) as your default browser, then set Chrome back as the default browser again to have Chrome re-register its file-types, including magnet links.
