Setting Folx as default torrent downloader in Opera

When you click a link to a .torrent file in Opera web browser, a download dialog will pop up prompting you to choose the way to download this torrent.

Opera_1_1

Opera has the built-in torrent client which is used by default. If you choose another torrent client, Opera will not let you remember this choice (“Remember choice and do not show dialog again” option is inactive). Thus, each time when you download torrents this dialog will pop up prompting you to use Opera torrent client.

Set Folx as default torrent client in Opera, as follows:

1. In Opera address bar type “opera:config” (without quotes) to display Opera preferences editor and click “BitTorrent”  to unwind Opera torrent client settings.
