sharepoint 2016 on premise - in Edge and Chrome browsers via _layouts/15/Lightbox.aspx the image type Tif does not appear

When you open tif files in sharepoint 2016 on premise in Edge and Chrome browsers via _layouts/15/Lightbox.aspx the image does not appear. With other types of image does not happen. I checked the web.config file of the blokecage and everything looks OK.

<BlobCache location="L:\BlobCache" path=".(gif|jpg|jpeg|jpe|jfif|bmp|dib|tif|tiff|themedbmp|themedcss|themedgif|themedjpg|themedpng|ico|png|wdp|hdp|css|js|asf|avi|flv|m4v|mov|mp3|mp4|mpeg|mpg|rm|rmvb|wma|wmv|ogg|ogv|oga|webm|xap)$" maxSize="10" enabled="true" />
<ObjectCache maxSize="100" />
<OutputCacheProfiles useCacheProfileOverrides="false" varyByHeader="" varyByParam="*" varyByCustom="" varyByRights="true" cacheForEditRights="false" />
<MediaAssets mediaFileExtensions="wmv,wma,avi,mpg,mp3,mp4,asf,ogg,ogv,oga,webm" silverlightMediaFileExtensions="wmv,wma,mp3,mp4,asf" html5AudioFileExtensions="wav,wma,mp3,oga" imageFileExtensions="gif,jpeg,jpg,jpe,jfif,bmp,dib,png,tif,tiff,ico,wdp,hdp" />
<RuntimeFilter Assembly="Microsoft.Office.Server, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c" Class="Microsoft.Office.Server.Audience.AudienceManager" BuilderURL="audience_chooser.aspx" />

Any ideas? is this popup option not compatible with edge and chrome?

    Hi @Flórida Araújo
    Internet Explorer displays TIF images by default. But on other browsers, you should change the TIFF image from IMG HTML tags to canvas tags. TIFF files are not supported by browsers. Scalability results in many different types of TIFF pictures, not all TIFF files are compatible with programs that support the base TIFF standard.

    You might need to set the library to the classic experience (in advanced settings to get IE to work).

    Alternatively just convert the TIF to PDF.
