Does or doesn't Firefox 3.5.9 work with Argyll profiles?
It's hard to say. It probably works with matrix based display profiles. [Summary: Firefox used to use Lcms and hence it worked with most profiles. In response to an imagined security issue though, some firefox developers went crazy and created their own CMM to replace it. Their CMM is rather primitive. Feel free to encourage them to revert to sanity, or at least bring their CMM up to some level of usability.]
I had had my Firefox unmanaged quite a long time now and it gets more and more frustrating. I had a XYZ LUT + matrix profile that work with Gimp and Geany but not with Firefox. It's really no fun then I looking at pictures on photographic sites with my wide gammut display. I have read the thread "XYZ LUT profile unable to be installedon Windows XP or used with Firefox". ( http://www.freelists.org/post/argyllcms/XYZ-LUT-profile-unable-to-be-installed-on-Windows-XP-or-used-with-Firefox-35) I don't understand how to make such a shaper + matrix profile that is said to work with Firefox. " "Just try -g or -s keys for colprof. The profile will be shaper&matrix in the case and FireFox will handle such profiles well." The example in the thread is: "colprof -v -qh -ax -A Sony -M GDM-F520 -C "(c) 2009" -D "12-20-2009" -S "sRGB.icm" "12-20-2009"
The example creates a cLut based profile, which was the main topic of the thread. For a matrix based profile you need to use -as or -ag or some other matrix option (-aG, -aS). So at its most basic: colprof -v -as -D "Description" basename which reads in the basename.ti3 and spits out basename.icc Graeme Gill.
