    I've seen this on different computers but on the same computer it's weird that one browser renders the colors so much brighter(or lack of) than the other. The way it looks in Safari(right image) is the way it looks in Photoshop but in Firefox the colors are dull. Any idea how to change htis?

    Safari is colour-managed and Firefox probably isn't.

    I'd change the image to sRGB colour space in Photoshop (if it isn't already), but then when you save it make sure you uncheck the 'include ICC profile' option. That way nothing will colour manage the picture and you'll have some consistency (or at least, the same inconsistency everywhere!).

    Color-managing documents for online viewing

    Color management for online viewing is very different from color management for printed media. With printed media, you have far more control over the appearance of the final document. With online media, your document will appear on a wide range of possibly uncalibrated monitors and video display systems, significantly limiting your control over color consistency.

    When you color-manage documents that will be viewed exclusively on the web, Adobe recommends that you use the sRGB color space. sRGB is the default working space for most Adobe color settings, but you can verify that sRGB is selected in the Color Settings dialog box (Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign) or the Color Management preferences (Acrobat). With the working space set to sRGB, any RGB graphics you create will use sRGB as the color space.

    When working with images that have an embedded color profile other than sRGB, you should convert the image’s colors to sRGB before you save the image for use on the web. If you want the application to automatically convert the colors to sRGB when you open the image, select Convert To Working Space as the RGB color management policy. (Make sure that your RGB working space is set to sRGB.) In Photoshop and InDesign, you can also manually convert the colors to sRGB using the Edit > Convert To Profile command.
