Another small correction:

The command used in exec should have %U as argument instead of %F. Apparently the new freedesktop-tools are a bit stricter and this causes issues with transmission being invoked directly from the browser.

ampelbein, if you're already up to speed on this, could you attach a patch?

ampelbein: thanks for the patch.

I've been holding off on applying this because I've gotten mixed signals on what The Right Thing to do here is -- kklimonda reported that he had some problems with %U in Ubuntu 10.04.

Still, of the two choices, %U seems like it will cause fewer problems, so I should apply it :)
