I just updated my Firefox browser to version 3.5, went to a favorite page on CNET that has a number of test images, and it appears Mozilla have changed the colour management capabilities on the version 3.5 Firefox browser.
Going to the browser configuration menu (see my previous post Firefox V3 Browser Colour Management), I notice the gfx.color_management.enabled element has been removed. Now only gfx.color_management_rendering_intent and gfx.color_management.mode are listed.
Using the default setting of management.mode =1 from the upgrade (new browser default is 2), I get the following result:-
Notice how version 3 (right) displayed the color profiles correctly, but now version 3.5 (left) is not displaying e-sRGB and YCC-RGB correctly. The GBR and Adobe 1998 segments are displayed correctly.
I have looked around the web and apparently the reason for this change is that Firefox 3.5 no longer supports ICC Version 4.
I have ended up configuring my browser with the options:-
- gfx.color_management.mode = 2 (Color management applied only to tagged images.)
- gfx.color_management_rendering_intent = -1 (Use embedded intent)
For more information on these settings see the Mozilla developer forum – ICC color correction in Firefox.
