After a google search, I found some plugin that was supposed to work but I am running x86_64 and the plugin does not support that.
What can I do? Why doesn't Firefox support TIFF image displaying?
I've got Firefox 3.0.5 running on Ubuntu 8.04, and the following worked
1. Download the Debian package (here's the link I used)
2. Install it (I just double-clicked it, and the firefox add-on wizard took over).
3. Open a shell and type:
sudo cp /usr/lib/mozilla-tiff-plugin/mozilla-tiff-plugin.so /home/~YOUR~USERNAME~HERE~/.mozilla/plugins/
(edit the above command to include your own username, and remember it's case-sensitive)
4. Restart Firefox, then try to view a TIFF file. It should work.
Hope this does the trick for you,
