    Color Management in Firefox

    It appears that Firefox 3 has color management capabilities, but that they haven't yet provided an easy way to activate it. Or at least a setting in preferences. They're said to be working on making activation easy enough for people like me.

    See the discussion here: http://pixsylated.com/2008/06/color-...-in-firefox-3/

    Re: Color Management in Firefox

    Interesting...I didn't realize it didn't have it already! Safari has been color-managed for awhile. This is a good page to check if your browser is color managed:

    Of course, one problem is that your images need to be properly calibrated and tagged. Unfortunately, photoshop's "save for web" feature still does not offer the ability to leave a profile on the jpeg it outputs...

    Re: Color Management in Firefox

    I made the minor tweak using the "about:config" method described in Rob G's article. It was extremely easy. Open Firefox and in the URL address window type about:config. Enter "gfx" in the filter field to narrow the results. Then double click the gfx.color.management bar so it displayes "true" and you're done. Simply restart Firefox and bingo.

    Tim, thanks for the tutorial. I DL'd the file but it wouldn't install, and of course your method was bone simple. And now FF3 is actually color managed
