Wikimedia Commons: download instead of zoom in for TIFF files
Open, Needs TriagePublicBUG REPORT


Steps to replicate the issue (include links if applicable):

  • go to Commons and open the Gallery of new files
  • click on the thumbnail of an image
  • use the cursor, shown as a magnifying glass icon with a "+" on the center, for zooming the image

What happens?:

  • the download starts

What should have happened instead?:

  • the zoom is suggested by design (the magnifying glass icon), so if I use a magnifying glass icon with a "+", clicking on the image should correspond to the action of zooming in.

Software version (skip for WMF-hosted wikis like Wikipedia):
Firefox version 113.0.2 (64 bits), Windows 10 Home, screen resolution 2560x1440

Other information (browser name/version, screenshots, etc.):

The steps are incomplete; this requires enabling "Enable Media Viewer" in

the download starts

Cannot reproduce using Firefox 113. On , clicking on the image opens and does not download anything (in the sense of an explicit browser download).

I'm using Version 113.0.2 (64 bits), sorry I copy and paste my Software version from an other ticket.

@Aklapper I can reproduce it, using your link the download doesn't start. But download is also happening for me using Chrome, please double check this issue with this link:
or an other one (.tif) on the page.

Perhaps it is happening only with tif files?

I've changed my preferences for Firefox. With jpeg files, no problem to zoom. With tif files, a pop up open asking for what to do with the file. Actually, my setting on Firefox is exactly the same for jpeg and tif files.
The magnifying glass icon is not correct for the choice between download and open the file, a cursor would be consistent instead.
