Yes, it's a bit strange. 

Mime types in Icewasel are defined by means of "~/.mozilla/firefox/
[profile].default/mimeTypes.rdf", a plain text file that Mozilla does not 
recommend to be manually edited and that reflects the available options 
under Preferences / Applications tab.

In that file, I have not "torrent" type defined so neither I have in 
Aplications preferences :-?

Yes, that can be another action plan I was thinking on. My GNOME desktop 
has indeed an association for torrent files, which leads me to think that 
Icewasel could be also querying the whole system mimetypes database.
