Firefox displays images darker than other browsers/image editing software
I've uploaded a couple pictures to flickr and they are displayed darker than in other browsers, photoshop, irfanview, xnview etc. This also happens if I open the image directly. I save all my pictures in sRGB with ICC profile embedded. If I change gfx.color_management.mode to 0 it displays correctly but I'd like it to display correctly with the standard setting if possible as I have the same problem on my other PC (and therefore possibly on others too?). Not sure what I'm doing wrong.

This is the default behavior for images with International Color Consortium (ICC) tagging. This has been the default behavior since Firefox 3.5. More information about this can be found in the ICC color correction in Firefox documentation on the Mozilla Developer Network.
If you are the one that is saving the images, it has to do with your color profile settings in the exported image. It varies depending on the software that you are using. See Preparing Images for the Web: Color Profiles, sRGB and Adobe RGB for more information.
Hope this helps.
