{{ fx_minversion_header("3") }}

Although support for color correction was introduced in Firefox 3, it was disabled by default, requiring some tinkering about in the about:config window to enable it.  Firefox 3.1 addresses the issues that caused it be disabled by default in the previous version, and now images with International Color Consortium (ICC) tagging are, by default, color corrected.

Color correction can be controlled by setting the value of the gfx.color_management.mode preference, as follows:

Value Type Description
active boolean true if the cache is the active cache for its group, otherwise false.
clientID ACString The cache's client ID.  Clients can open a session to interact with the cache by calling the {{ interface("nsICacheService") }} method {{ ifmethod("nsICacheService", "createSession") }} using this client ID and a storage policy of STORE_OFFLINE. Read only.
groupID ACString The cache group's group ID.  This is the URI of the cache manifest file. Read only.
