Display Images at their Best Quality in Firefox using Color Management

By default, Firefox 3 doesn’t display images at their best possible quality. In fact, it reduces the quality of images so that the page loads faster with lesser CPU utilization. Loading images with the best possible quality hampers the performance of Firefox by 10-15%. However, if you are a graphic designer or if you need the displayed image to be of the best possible quality then follow these simple steps to activate the Color Management.
