Trying to open a link and transmission has disappeared from the list of applications to choose from

Asked by zohar995 on 2013-08-04

Regularly use transmission now for unknown reason it won't appear on the list of applications to choose from when I click a link to download.
Can not find it when browsing the file system, however the application is installed and running fine.

First of all thank you. Meanwhile I think I fixed the problem. When last clicked on a magnet link and opened to choose transmisson-gtk appeared as an option, then I changed the always ask to this in the firefox preferences.
Anyway this is the output:
bibi@bibi-Compaq-Mini-110c-1000:~$ lsb_release -a; uname -a; apt-cache policy transmission
