Both screenshots are taken from the same system (firefox-52.0.2-2.fc25.x86_64 on Fedora 25 / 4.10.8-200.fc25.x86_64)

The one on the left is with gfx.color_management.mode set to the default (2) and the one on the right is with gfx.color_management.mode explicitly set to 0.

As you can see, Firefox is basically unusable in this instance, unless color-management is disabled, and this is the case with many of the images on ArsTechnica (I haven't noticed this on other websites).
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:55.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/55.0 (Fedora 23 & Ubuntu 14.04)

I have tested your issue on latest Firefox release v53 and latest Nightly (Build ID: 20170424030211) and could not reproduce it. I have followed the steps from comment 0 and tried them on Fedora 23 and Ubuntu 14.04. The picture was clearly visible and gfx.color_management.mode was set to 2.

Is this still reproducible on your end ? If yes, can you please retest this using latest Firefox release and latest Nightly build ( and report back the results ? When doing this, please use a new clean Firefox profile, maybe even safe mode, to eliminate custom settings as a possible cause (

It seems to be resolved now. Which is interesting because this has been bugging me for months, and I've even seen other people on the ArsTechnica comments area complaining about the same issue.
