NZB file autoloading into newsbin from firefox

Postby Deano79 » Sun Nov 12, 2017 7:56 pm

Hi,

I must of made a change recently to firefox or something, before i used to click on the nzb file it would download and the autoload in newsbin, now it just downloads, any idea how to get it to open up in newsbin again without have to click on the file in the download location?

Thanks

Under Tools > Options in Firefox on the General tab about half way down there is a File and Applications section. Under there is a Big White box with a list of applications.. Look for NZB and then on the right change the always ask to Use NewsbinPro Newsgroup Reader.

Instead of Saving the file should open it in Newsbin.. (In Theory)

Re-installing Newsbin without deleting the existing install should re-associate Newsbin with NZB files too. Basically I'm suggesting you do an upgrade install.

Hi all,

Thanks for the replies, I've tried both and no luck.

NZB files are associated with Newsbin within windows and on firefox.

So if i clicked on a NZB file it would load up into newsbin but it's when i click to download on firefox, it used to either load in newsbin or open newsbin then load, now it just goes to the downloads location within firefox.

You probably don't want "Download" but instead need to use "Open". Downloading the NZB probably won't trigger Newsbin. You need FF to open the application that handles NZB's which in this case is Newsbin. I don't use FF so, I don't know specifically how you tell it "Open" instead of "Download".
