Quote: switch the value of gfx.color_management.mode to '1'.
Done that. It was actually set to '0' rather than'2.'

Right I thought I would have a look at this tonight. It seems that by default Firefox is colour managed now.
Both Jester and myself had it set to 2 which seems to Enable color management for tagged graphics only. (Default)
anyway there is a plugin that allows you to tweek the settings easily here.
Aye, I've always used the plug-in rather than dig around under the hood. It's a little bizarre that Chrome doesn't seem to offer the option to assign sRGB to untagged files, but kind of expected in Safari because Apple don't make wide-gamut monitors...
It's funny, I have been wondering why my shots looked massively over saturated when I viewed them on here, just switched on "embed profile" and the shot I uploaded looks so much better.
Yep, should really be prominent in ephotozine advice to embed the profile - quite a large proportion of people don't. Not exactly a major crisis, but they're probably unaware of the consequences nonetheless.
Perhaps we'll see a few more wide-gamut monitors on the market since browsers are starting to align, although I think the real issue is just that standard gamut can typically be made more cheaply (using panels of low 6-bit colour depth).
