What causes these two variant colors in FireFox? Put simply, it seems that the css color code and the image color code do not match in Firefox 3.5 or higher.

You can fix this problem in two ways. You can adjust the gfx color management mode in FireFox or you can save your images in RGB rather than sRGB, that is, if you use Adobe Photoshop CS4 or higher.

Adjust GFX Color Management Mode in FireFox

1. Open FireFox

2. Type about:config in your url address line and click arrow to enter.

Once you click to enter, a web page will appear with a warning. You will need to click on I'll be careful, I promise!

3. Enter in the Filter line: gfx

4. Double click on gfx.color_management.mode and change value to 1

The default is set at 2 for gfx.color_management.mode. What you will need to do is change the value to 1.

5. Close FireFox and Re-open

Once you re-open Firefox, the problem should be solved.

Save Image in RGB Rather Than sRGB

If you don't want to adjust the gfx.color_management.mode in FireFox 3.5 or higher, you can try saving your images in RGB rather than sRGB in Adobe Photoshop CS4 of higher.

When saving image in Adobe Photoshop CS4 or higher, undo color tag ICC Profile: sRGB IEC61966-2.1. You will find ICC Profile at the bottom of SAVE AS caption.

I find this works for me.
