I could have sworn a week or two ago I was able to open .tiff files in the Firefox browser. But this week, when I click on a file, it goes straight to saving them to my computer. Is there a way to change this setting? I checked in my options, but did not see .tiff.

It seems Firefox is now downloading all files, even if you only want to open them. A temporary 'fix' is outlined in the thread below.

Okay, the solution in the first link added this file type to the application settings. I set it to "always ask" as it had been before, I believe.
