GIF Viewing in Browser

I have created a multi-image GIF using Anders Melander's TGIFImage control.

My question is not a programming one.

When I load the GIF into the Windows Browser it automatically runs as an animation. I want to step through the images as I would with a multi-page TIFF.

Any suggestions?

Yes I want to display each image frame by frame using the Back and Forward arrows in the browser.

At the moment, as soon as the GIF loads, it flips through all the images and only displays the last one.

The Browser arrows are not enabled so I cannot go back to any other frame.

I want to know if there is a setting in the GIF header that controls how the Browser displays the GIF or is there a setting in the Browser that controls this?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

The only way I know of to do this would be to break the GIF apart and use the separate images.
There is no way to control the animation of the gif once it is saves as it is embeded in the file
itself.
