I want to stop Quicktime from handling TIFF files without uninstalling Quicktime or disabling the plugin.
I have Cannon iR3045 scanner/fax/printer/copier. When you scan documents, they are available via the web interface as TIFF files. When I view the scan, Quicktime is loaded. Unfortunately Quicktime blocks saving the image unless you pay. I think it would generally be more useful to have no support for viewing tiff files in the browser then to have Quicktime open the file, and block users from being able to save the file.
The challenge is that Quicktime must be installed on the computers for access to video on other pages, so I cannot uninstall quicklime, or disable the NPAPI plugin.
The browser primarily being used is Firefox 5 or 6, but I have see the same behavior on Chrome. The systems in question are mostly running Windows 7.
I have checked the
Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Default Programs\Set Associations. Quicktime is not set to handle .tiff or .tif files, that is currently set to Windows Photo Viewer.
If I disable the NPAPI plugin Quicktime in Firefox/Chrome then the browser does prompt you to save the tiff file which is what I want.
So is there any way for me to disable Quicktime handling of just Tiff Files?
