Reproduction:
1. Put a tiff image (e.g. test.tiff) on your server (Apache in my case)
2. Open the corresponding URL directly in your browser

Actual result:
The browser endlessly opens new, empty browser windows. Each time,
Error loading URL http://.../... : 2152398850appears on the console.

Expected result:
The image is displayed in the browser or a dialog comes up, asking me, if I want
to save it as file or what to open it with a certain external app.
imagelib, perhaps?
