I've mentioned if few times - Summary: Firefox used to use Lcms and hence it 
worked with
most profiles. In response to an imagined security issue, some firefox 
went crazy and "whipped up" their own CMM to replace it. Their CMM is rather 
(i.e. try a cLUT based display profile).

Feel free to encourage them to revert to sanity, or at least bring their CMM up 
to some
level of usability. (The best approach would probably be to submit a patch that 
to lcms V2)
