    Hi peeps.

    A little help needed if no one minds?

    I am having trouble download .nzb files.

    When i try i get an error via firefox saying: ...nzb could not be opened, because the associated helper application does not exist.

    I used to used Unison to open this file be have now deleted this and started using i grab and nzb drop.

    I don't know if the problem is with my firefox settings or what? Ive had a look but cant seem to sort it out...

    Thanks in advance for your help as i know how helpful you peeps can be on here!

    To set the file association, right click on a .nzb file, and select Open with>Other. Pick the application from the list and check the 'Always open with' checkbox on the lower left of the window

    I don't use Firefox, but in Camino you can uncheck an 'Open after download' checkbox, which should stop your error message. It means you will have to manually open the files, but I guess you're doing that anyway
