Color management allows images and colors to be displayed consistently across a variety of devices. Mozilla recognizes embedded ICC profiles in image files and uses a local color profile to perform the color adjustments. This preference determines if Mozilla should make these adjustments.
The extension Color Management sets this preference through a GUI.
Possible values and their effects
Disable color management.
Enable color management for rendered graphics.
Enable color management for tagged graphics only. (Default)
Note: These values apply to Firefox 3.5 and SeaMonkey 2. In previous versions, color management was disabled by default via the boolean preference gfx.color_management.enabled set to "false".
- Without a properly calibrated monitor and a correct color profile, color management may actually make colors look worse.
