Quicktime will not print tiff files from my browser

I was having problems with viewing Tiff files through Internet Explorer, so installed Quicktime. I am able to view the files fine, but now when I print, it just prints the header(page 1 of 1) and the footer(the url of the website). It does not print the actuall tiff file

I'd suggest you right click and save the tiff file to your computer first.

Then open it up in a drawing package. Even paint should be able to handle these files.

Click
Start >> All programs >> Accessories >> Paint

Open the file and print from here.

Quicktime is really for playing Apple Mac video files .mov

Let me know if you need any more help!

   To actually print an image file embedded in html document ( WEB page you are viewing) you have to either download file, store it locally and reopen it for editing/printing with your image manipulation program ( e.g Paint, MS Image Editor, Adobe PaintShop etc.) or
select an option to view picture(image file) in new browser window and then print it.
Otherwise (printing directly from browser) will give you exactly what you're now getting as a result - html document without embedded objects ( tiff file in your case).
   I doubt MS paint will open TIFF file , unless you have filters ( The program opens and saves files as Windows bitmap (24-bit, 256 color, 16 color, and monochrome, all with the .bmp extension), JPEG, GIF, PNG, and TIFF. Older versions cannot open or edit PNG files, and can only open GIF, JPEG, and TIFF files with a graphics filter for the specific file type. )
  To my best knowledge the only application that will handle TIFF files on Windows OS is Kodak Imaging ( Accessories, Imaging).
  Even better imaging software you might wish to use is free irfanview  ( http://www.irfanview.com )
  The best thing you can do to grab tiff image and print it is to rightclick on image in your browser window , select and option save image as... reopen it either with Kodak Imaging or Irfanview and then print it from withing your imaging application window.
  Note that Internet Explorer can save picure files only in *.bmp and *.jpeg format which can result in loss of quality. If you really want *tiff file the bets you can do is to save whole WEB page locally and extract the tiff file which you can then reopen with abovementioned image managing applications.
 
  good luck
