[SOLVED] too pale .png images in Firefox.

I've been googling around some time now, to find a solution/explanation to this weird "bug".

As seen in the screenshot I've provided, the .png images in Firefox are too pale compared to the same images viewed through Google Chrome. (The background color is black, and the .png images mentioned is the header and the footer, which both are supposed to be black to grey gradients!)

I'm running Fedora 12, and while running Fedora 11, Firefox was showing .png images correctly.
BTW, when running Ubuntu 9.10, Firefox are showing the .png images correctly, which make me wonder if this is some sort of Firefox/Fedora 12 issue!?

Have anybody else experienced this (in lack of a better word) "bug", and is there some solution to fix this.

Okey, I found a solution, by following the instruction in this link:

I went into about:config and changed the gfx.color_management.mode from 2 to 0:

0 - Color management disabled - default in Firefox 3
1 - Full color management
2 - Color management on tagged pictures - default in Firefox 3.5

Thanks for coming back to post the solution (you may be the first to notice this and/or find that new default setting), and glad it worked out.
