Getting patent images (Mac OS 9.2, Netscape 7.0)? - Mac Applications & Software

I used to be able to download patent images from the USPTO site, but with my current setup I don't seem to be able to.

    Default Getting patent images (Mac OS 9.2, Netscape 7.0)?

    I used to be able to download patent images from the USPTO site, but
    with my current setup I don't seem to be able to.

    These are in some cases "older" (pre-1976) patents for which "Full text"
    is not available, but "Images" are supposed to be. I find a patent;
    clikc on the Images button and go to the Images window on the PTO site;
    a QuickTime icon briefly appears in the window, then goes away; the
    progress bar claims the PTO is delivering data; but no image ever
    appears.

    What might I be doing wrong? My current setup is Mac iBook, OS 9.2.2,
    Netscape 7.0, QuickTime 6.0.3. The setup that used to work was, I
    think, the same except for using Netscape 4.77. Do I need to set some
    helper app setting in Netscape?

    I had trouble getting Quick Time to work for this purpose under Windows,
    so I switched back to Alternatiff. I don't know what is available for the
    MacOS, though.

    It sounds like you either don't have a tiff viewer or your tiff viewer
    set up is incorrect. I'm not using a Mac, but I seem to recall that
    when I downloaded my viewer there were separate applications for
    IE and Netscape.

    Sorry I can't supply more directed assistance.

    I'll bet it is your TIFF reader. I use something called accel viewtiff.
