Right, so both XP and Firefox can't handle an XYZ cLUT Display profile that

Yes, maybe you are right. But... I don't understand your advice, sorry. 
Argyll's XYZ
LUT based profile DOESN'T work on Windows XP platform (there are 1,600 
computers - 98%
with Windows XP only in my office). LUT based profiles created by ProfileMaker,
ColorEyes Display Pro, basICColor display4 and so on DOES work.

Correction, the Matrix based profiles from Argyll work with windows XP,
as to the Matrix based profiles from other software. The fact that
those Matrix based profiles have Luts in them doesn't make them
Lut profiles if the tags are ignored hy the operating system.

Microsoft doesn't care
about XP. What can I do? Yes, I can use i1Match, but I'd like to use ArgyllCMS. 
Is it
difficult to "repair" Argyll?

Create a Matrix profile for systems that can't handle cLUT based profiles.
