    There's already thread about washed out videos in Firefox, which prompted me to see if there is a fix for the image problem yet - it used to bug me in FF2 how Safari would display the same images much more vibrantly, like this:

    Firefox 3 finally fixes this problem. :D Color profile support is enabled by switching 'gfx.color_management.enabled' to true in about:config (as explained here).

    Hope this helps whoever finds it annoying too!

    I realize this is a big concern for photographers. So they should be happy with the fix. Normal users probably ok with it since this only happen with certain type of pictures with certain type of color profiles.

    Plus, there is a pending bug related to this, turning it on will cause color mismatch of firefox toolbar and title bar. https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=403169 This bug has high priority, (p2), but is not a blocker for firefox 3, which means firefox 3 probably won't fix this mismatch...

    Ah, thanks for the info about the bug. I hadn't noticed it since I've turned everything pink with Persona. ^^
