Hope someone can help...
I am going to a website and downloading a .tiff file that I would like to save to my hard drive. I have a new computer, and on this system when I click on the link to open the file it starts a java script and opens in a new browser window. It loads with a quicktime plugin and there is nothing I can do with this picture. I cannot right click and save (that just brings up the quicktime options) and when I try to print it gives me a blank page with just the header and footer info.
I tried opening this file on my older computer, and the other computer downloads the file and opens the .tiff in paint shop pro, which I had set to handle those file types. I checked Tools, Internet Options, Advanced to see if there was something in there that I could check/uncheck to make my new computer handle the tiff files differently. That's when I came across the "Manage Add-ons" and starting looking through the plugins. My old computer had some java plugins and an adobe acrobat plugin that the new computer did not have. I went to those websites and downloaded their files to install the plugins. This still did not work. If I disable the quicktime plugin the tiff file comes up as a red x and there is a link at the bottom to manage the add-ons.
How do I get another plugin to handle the tiff files or have quicktime stop interferring with the files? I right-clicked on the tiff file and it opens the quicktime options, which I unchecked the box for it to handle still graphics files (tiff, jpgs, etc.)
Thank you for any help you can offer.
