Since an update to Firefox early in the year JPEGs have begun appearing with a green colour bias (very noticeable in black and white images) which isn't in the original image. I first noticed this on photos viewed on Facebook and initially believed it to be a problem specific to that site, but am increasingly seeing it on images from many different websites - including Flickr.
Having searched for examples of people with a similar problem, the only suggested reason I've been able to find for this was that the images were created using the wrong colour profile and should work fine if created in sRGB. However, this happens with images I upload to both Facebook and Flickr myself and having checked, all are already in sRGB.
All images effected display correctly when viewed in other browsers (tested myself using both IE8 and Opera).
I've tried running Firefox in safemode, uninstalling then reinstalling Firefox, and also uninstalling Firefox along with the whole profile to do a completely fresh install and then checking again before any add-ons/themes were installed - under all circumstances the images continue to display with this green tint to them.
The URL I've provided (http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=1062726&l=e70ee32093&id=1424061557) links to a screen capture I took and placed on my Facebook profile to illustrate the problem to others soon after I first encountered it.
Originally I hoped this was a small bug within Firefox that would be fixed with a later update, but this clearly isn't the case as there have been several updates since then without this changing and other people using Firefox have told me that they don't have this problem viewing the same images. Having searched the support pages and forums several times over the months since this first began, and having now found the time to do a completely fresh install of Firefox - all without managing to fix this problem - I'm now drawing a blank as to how to proceed.
Any help would be very gratefully received. I've used Firefox since the days it was known as Phoenix and much prefer it to the other browsers available. Having to keep switching to Opera whenever I need to be sure what I'm seeing and any images I upload are coloured correctly has become really irritating over time.
