I have had all kinds of trouble trying to download a movie--in fact, I haven't even been able to get one to start. I have downloaded most of the bit torrent clients in the repository and Firefox seems to have an issue with what I am trying to download.
Here is the message I get when I click on Get this torrent:
The address wasn't understood
Firefox doesn't know how to open this address, because the protocol (magnet) isn't associated with any program.
You might need to install other software to open this address.
According to the page at http://tpb.sourceforge.net/help/
"Download and install Miro from getmiro.com. It works on Windows, Mac, and Linux."
It is not in the repository so that is why I am asking. I would never put anything on my computer that is not in the repository without checking first.
