Confirmed bug 100% of time when trying to look up a US patent. 1. Go to http://patft.uspto.gov/netahtml/search-bool.html 2. Put 123 in Term 1 and click search button to get live patent links 3. Click on any patent link 4. Click red Images button at top Quicktime 5.02 plugin starts, tiff file starts loading but no patent shows up. Used to work with Moz 1.2 but does not work on Moz 1.4rc1 on WinME However, dragging a .tiff file from Explorer into a browser window works fine.
Upgrading to QuickTime Plug-in 6.1c appeared to fix this. After the upgrade, try to load a .tiff. The QuickTime image viewer may need additional update to handle the file (this happened with WinXP, but not Win2k).
The QuickTime Plug-in default/minimal installation will not display .tiff images. After the install, bring up the "QuickTime Updater" app and click the Custom button. On the list of "Update compontents", check the box for "QuickTime Still Image" and click the "Update Now" button. QuickTime will then install the .tiff viewer component.
Not a bug in Mozilla.
