Posted file 5500K 2.2.icc
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:5.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/5.0
Build ID: 20110615151330

Steps to reproduce:

Using the latest version of Firefox.

1. Typed about:config in the address bar.
2. Changed gfx.color_management.mode to 1.
3. Changed gfx.color_management.display_profile to C:\WINDOWS\system32\spool\drivers\color\5500K 2.2.icc
4. Closed Firefox.
5. Restarted Firefox.
6. Typed the URL of a reference image (my desktop wallpaper, actually, although any image works).
7. Pressed enter to load and view the image in Firefox.

Actual results:

Image appears dull and unsaturated, pretty much like my monitor before I calibrated it.  Same image file appears fine and more colourful when viewed in any other application, such as Windows Image Viewer, Photoshop, MS Internet Explorer, etc.

Expected results:

The ICC profile obviously did not load.  I have tried every setting in gfx.color_management.rendering_intent, also, to try and get this to work, but it was a futile attempt.

I have also tried not specifying the path to the display profile, deleting the line and leaving an empty string, in hope Firefox would use my default monitor profile (same file) but alas, that didn't work either.  I've tried everything and I can't get Firefox to use the profile.

I've attached it here. I have an .icc and .icm version, neither work.

Bug not resolved in Firefox 6.
Severity: normal → critical
OS: Other → Windows XP
Version: 5 Branch → 6 Branch
The profile could be failing the bogus profile test.

If that is the case, then there is a problem with the test.  The profile works with IE, Chrome, Windows, Adobe applications...  there's no reason why Firefox shouldn't support it.
Agreed, I'm just trying to figure out what could be going on.

Ok.  Is anyone looking at this issue?

Here's a test page which demonstrates either this or a related problem:

You need to turn on color management (of course) and load an ICC profile that's not straight sRGB.

Checked on Debian Wheezy, FF 16.
Works for me when I flip 'gfx.color_management.enablev4'

[testing] Not for me – turned that on, restarted Firefox, still different.
