    Hi! Just a couple of questions, thanks in advance!

    If I download a torrent in firefox vuze automatically opens (because that's what I have set it to do under the application tab in preferences). But I'm using safari, as my primary browser, and I would like for safari to associate torrents with vuze/transmission in the same way.

    When I download a torrent from, say, mininova the torrent is downloaded to my downloads folder and is visible in the safari download window (with the azureus icon) - but I manually have to open the torrent for vuze to start downloading. So the torrent is associated to vuze, but it doesn't automatically start downloading.

    I also wanted to know how to associate certain filetypes (like .torrents .jpeg .mp3 etc) to a specific applicatiion - just like my torrents are associated to vuze. I guess some apps have that option in the preferences or when it is installed - but I was wondering if there is a way to view a list of a bunch of different filetypes and then manually associate them to a different app than they already are - maybe there is an app that does just that?

    Oh, and finally; the safari download window I was talking about: Is there a way to open that window to view your recent downloads. In firefox you just go: tools --> downloads - and you can even fit a "open-download-window" button in the bookmark toolbar (and because I just can't figure out how I initially got it there I would like to know how - in case some of you know).

    I really had hoped someone could help me with this one - not with all of my problems, but anything at all will help

    Please do not bump threads. If no-one can help, check out Vuze forum.

    Nobody here has ever encountered?

    BUMP, as a Mac forum is the place to deal with issues that Macs specifically keep from happening. I never had this problem until I started using Safari on my Mac. Why wouldn't this be automatic. I thought Apples were supposed to be more user friendly.

    If you want to use Vuze as your default .torrent file handler, then you must set .torrent files to Open with: Vuze in the File/Get Info dialog box.
