Firefox colours washed-out

I just installed Firefox and found that the browser looks washed out compared to other browsers - Safari, Chromium, Vivaldi, Opera and Brave. The whole things - the browser itself and the web content. Here is an example of my Adguard Home page. Firefox on the left, Chromium on the right. Im using an Apple Mac Mini M1 and the Firefox version is 86.0.1 running the ARM 64 (universal) version. Is there anything I can do? I have tried the old trick of diabling hardware acceleration and it makes no difference whatsoever.

I did some digging and this page helped me to adjust a couple of settings in about:config.

I have set gfx.color_management.mode to 1 and gfx.color_management.enablev4 to true. Firebox is now looking less washed-out.

Any comments on these settings or anything else connected with my question would be gratefully received.
