    So I just bought a new monitor to hook up to my MBP.

    I am very confused at setting it up so far. I purchased a Dell S2340M.

    What is beyond confusing to me is that on certain things it looks awesome, its a beautiful picture sharp and very colorful. In Aperture it looks great and in most programs.

    Where I am seeing images look awful are is on FireFox. And it is funny because it varies from website to website. Facebook looks awful, images there look too dark or too saturated. I don't even know the word to describe how it looks. The funny thing when I opened Safari to check, Facebook images looked fine!

    But when I go to other sites, the images look fine.

    I ran the calibration in the Mac O/S, which I hate btw. Its so hard to judge those stupid boxes, lol.

    Any help or idea what it could be?

    I think part of it is the way I calibrated it... I am awful at that.

    Clinch you eyes while doing the calibration, it helps. (Yes, it does actually says so in the documentation)

    I saw that and tried it, but it doesn't really help.
