Working under Firefox 45.0.2 Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Really a great extension happy to see it was given new life here. Still working under Firefox 45.0.2 though at first glace it appears not to save the settings it still does.
Also torrent/magent pass though was tested under Vuze v220.127.116.11 and qBittorrent v3.3.4. I did notice when the Firefox is restarted/closed I had to reopen the webUI (easy two clicks from the button) before it would once again connect for torrent/magnet pass through.
Working fine Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Sorry for previous comment. For Rutorrent I added wrong server name now it's working perfect! Thank you very much for your helpThis user has a previous review of this add-on.
Does not save BitTorrent client in settings Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Current version does not save what client you select from the preference drop down. Keeps resetting to Azureus, making any other client inoperable.

Foo Farkle feature request and my praise Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Have you tried right-clicking the torrent link and choosing "Save Link As..."?
As for this add-on, I can't live without it, it works perfectly. Any chance for a Firefox mobile Android version?

This is a huge time saver for me. Always works without a hitch. Perfect. 5+ stars.
Feature Request Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I love this tool and have contrinuted to its support. However, there is use case that I did not see accounted for in the design. If I am creating a torrent in rtorrent from a remote system, I need to download the newly created torrent file to my local box, and then uload it to the remote tracker to get the seed process started. When the torrent creation process completes and I am offered teh option to save the new torrent file, I am unable to choose where to save it. The plugin assumes that I want to add it to my download queue. It would be helpful to offer two options: 1) download the new torrent file 2) add it to my snatch queue. The only workaround I have found is to disable the plugin, restart Firefox, download the new torrent file, reenable the plugin and restart Firefox again. That's a fairly cumbersome process. Please consider adding a feature to allow a "save" option. Thanks.

Needs support for modern Firefox versions
worked great, now it doesnt on ff 33 Rated 4 out of 5 stars
It worked last week, now it does not, and the only thing I can think of is the Firefox update.
Now in the plugin settings, the "Bittorrent Client" dropdown does not remember my setting (uTorrent).
How and where can I change the settings file you create?
Don't know how to use .torrent Rated 5 out of 5 stars
The plugin works fine with magnet link but I can't use it for .torrent files.
When I click on a link, the file is download by firefox download manager but is not send to the UI.
This is normally because a specific site use a method of generating download links that won't let the addon intercept them. Is it the same for all sites or only a specific one which that happens for?
how to configue it ?? Rated 5 out of 5 stars
plz could anyone explain how to setup this addon ? for example what is webui path ??
thank you so much for the help
Have a look at the screenshot under the addon summary for an example of the settings. Typically the default webui path should be used for your client type unless you are using something like rTorrent and have changed it.

Please, could you provide a debug mode that let us know what's going wrong with.
In my case, I can add magnet link with deluge 1.3.10 from ubuntu PPA, but with an mystérious message error "unknow server" :-/.
On kickass torrent, clicking on the .torrent link just open firefox traditionnal window : "open with" or "save on local drive"
Five stars, with a couple of chinks Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This is a great addon for those who have multi-machine setups. I've used it for months and during this time, I get to browse for torrents on my laptop from anywhere, send .torrent/magnet: back home to my desktop, and have the content already downloaded when I get back. This addon saved a lot of cut/paste and/or VNC.
I encountered two bugs recently so I thought I should bring them up to the dear developer:
First, the choice of torrent client doesn't stick in the setting's UI. To clarify, when I change the client, it DOES take effect. I know that by going to about:config and looking up extensions.bitTorrentWebUI.dispatcher value. This trick may help some users debug.
However, the change is not reflected in the UI, i.e., when a user clicks on Preference, the addon doesn't successfully read the saved up value on the choice of client and have that value reflected by making it the default option in the dropdown menu.
Secondly, .torrent files from a major sharing site have been escaping the addon and going straight to "Save As/Open With" popup window recently. I resorted to use only magnet link, but I had to give up certain functionality in my case.
It turns out the problem is in the header. This site set headers to Content-Type: application/octet-stream , aka binary, instead of the correct Content-Type: application/x-bittorrent. Firefox calls up its MIME type routines in order to pass the file to an external application, therefore bypassing the addon.
Until this addon is modified to accommodate this, I believe, glaring error from this dominant sharing site, I have a workaround. Two other addons, one called Mason and the other Force Content-Type let you override the webserver on this matter. The former is a better choice. It is a bit elaborate for the purpose, but the latter, by my experience, does not fire up every time reliably.
I hope we can see an update soon! Thanks Bunta, for the time and clicks and keystrokes you saved.

as per below I'm using FF 32.0.2This user has a previous review of this add-on.
That might be why then, it's only compatible up to FF 28. I've tested in FF 29 but had some bugs and haven't tested in any version higher than that.
Work perfectly but ... Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Work perfectly on my Windows 7 x64, but on my Windows 8.1 x64 i cant change the torrent software, if i change and validate, when i open again it's back to Azureus ... so when i try open a torrent file, nothing happen
Sorry for my english, Please help or update to fix this bug.
This sounds like a problem with your firefox not able to write the settings properly. Do you have a problem saving settings in any other addons?
Appears to be incompatible with later versions of Firefox. compatibility level is only know correct up to FF 28.
works perfectly! (with utorrent linux 3.3 beta) Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Does everything it should and works great! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This is a HUGELY useful plug-in! Use it at work and on my Mac etc to download from one uTorrent on my main Media Server. :) Does everything I need! :D
Keep it up!
P.S. Original error was fixed by uninstalling and re-installing uTorrent. :)
There is a link at the top of the description for bug reports and feedback.
Not sure why it would just stop working for you as you say it could possibly be the uTorrent version or Firefox update. If you middle click the addon icon to opne the web ui and can log in with the same username/password it should theoretically be fine.
You can try creating a new profile in firefox and testing it without any addons loaded to see if another addon may be interferring. Otherwise I would have to do some tests if that doesn't help.
Which version of Firefox are you using?
