Thanks for that, but had already looked through the manual and found no help.. I do notice that .PDF and .mp3 torrents download with the correct extension: .torrent. It 's the video torrents that aren' being downloaded with the .torrent file extension; instead, they have the .php extension. the files are the same size when checked on a computer, but they are rendered useless with thus extension. on the odd chance that it might work I changed the extension to .torrent, but it would not open.

this seems to me that I have missed something elemental, and I don't know what it is
thanks for looking

Probably the way the torrent site is designed. Try a different site. It's probably trying to do a popup window or something else tricky.
