    Unhappy Colors distorted in firefox browser

    Recently installed Ubuntu 10.10 on my Thinkpad W500 laptop.
    Installed the graphics driver which were recommended with
    Faced an issue with no desktop on startup and changed the GPU mode as mentioed in following link:
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1622003

    That fixed the issue with desktop and everything worked smooth.

    Now facing weird issue with the pictures in firefox browser.
    Many times the colors of the pictures gets distorted, all covered up in green/pink tint

    I am observing this only in the firefox browser display. If I download the same pic, it looks fine. Firefox version is the default one - 3.6.10

    Any suggestions how to fix this ?

    For starters, update your firefox to the last official version (I think it is something like 4.0 or 5.0 ... I Use the alpha - 9.0)

    That should help.

    It is a color management issue. See the last item on this list.

    The default value for that parameter in the firefox was 2
    Changed it to 0 and looks to be fixed

    Thanx a tonne !!

    BTW, what side effects may changing that value from 2 to 0 have ?
