Hi @sdtqwe4ty,
In the future post, I hope you’ll fill the requisite info as much as possible to make support and troubleshooting easier. :grin:

What happened when you click the torrent file? Did you already disable the built-in torrent viewer?

Thanks

I didn’t read the error message that popped, my eyes glazed over it like was a 404 screen, and I was in private mode which breaks the extension while it’s apparently enabled

@sdtqwe4ty,
To confirm, did toggling the WebTorrent setting “off” resolve this?

Not in private mode. It asks me to save the torrent file.
