One other tip if you have Quicktime installed for Firefox (or IE). Go into any folder, go to the menu bar, and select Tools/Folder Options. Click on the File Types tag, and then scroll down to TIF after the window populates itself. You can then hit the "Change" button and select Firefox or Internet Explorer as the default program for TIF files so they will open there automatically. If Firefox or IE does not appear on your list of programs, hit "Browse" and go to the folder they are in. Firefox is traditionally in "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe", and IE is in "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe"
