Firefox uses qcms, a modified lcms version which aims performance over
quality and (unfortunately also) compatibility (q = quick).

I wonder why Firefox doesn't bring back lcms now that PCs got faster
in the last years and Firefox started to use a lot of reasources

For example: qcms doesn't support lookup table based profiles
(compatibility problem) and prefers speed over quality (which sounds
stupid since color management should be all about quality, not speed -
even if some optimizations are necessary in some cases, but
optimizations, not speed over anything else thinking...).
