    Hey everybody. I have tried to activate ICC color correction in Firefox 3.
    https://developer.mozilla.org/En/ICC_color_correction_in_Firefox

    This should give the same colors ( correct colors ) as in Safari but my experience is that it doesn't! Instead the colors are slightly "redder" than in Safari. This results in fleshtones looking almost pink.
    Try comparing this picture in the two browsers. It's easy with exposé.

    What is your stance on ICC color in Firefox? In theory it should be better and essential for people that works with photos.

    Use: Value 2 Color management applied only to tagged images. (Default in Firefox 3.5.)

    and this give you the same colors ( correct colors ) as in Safari :D

    Cheers

    Hi,
    it is only possible with:
    Value 1 Full color management.

    Value 2 Color management applied only to tagged images.
    Changed for example nothing on you example picture. The image does not have a color profile.

    Cheers

    Ok. So I type in "Value 2 Color management applied only to tagged images" ? :)
    And do i still set gfx.color_management.enabled to false?
    I have tried various combinations but when I set the above to true almost everything get's to red.
