So should it be pointed to the monitor profile? If so, then there's a

Then it's better to leave it on sRGB?
Yes Firefox has issues with multiple monitors since it is only possible to
configure it for one profile.  Using sRgb is one option another is to always use
firefox on one monitor and set the correct profile in it's settings.

There is also a bugzilla entry for the multi-monitor issue.


So then the way it works is something like this?
Firefox reads an image tagged as profile X, converts it to the profile it has in its settings (e.g. sRGB), then hands it off to the system, which converts sRGB to display profile. If display profile is given to Firefox, the last step is NOOP since it's already using the right profile.
