    There is a bug on Firefox latest version(3.0) that some jpg files look under exposed and totally saturated. Have you guys noticed this too? Its really annoying when I open some pics and they look all red and dark icon_evil.gif

    edited: version with the bug is 3.5 not 3.0

    No. Could be your monitor or something? :d

    Usually with firefox it's one of your addons acting up. The more of them you have, the more likely one will not be compatible with a new version of Firefox and fuck it up. Try updating them all. If that doesn't work, try deactivating all of them and activating them one by one (or in small groups) to see which causes it. Then remove it.

    I had a problem with the new firefox update (tooltips not showing, and a little offwhite box showing up whenever I stop moving my mouse). That turned out to be a problem of the Google searchbar addon. I simply updated it.

    Worst case scenario: try exporting all bookmarks, exporting all add-ons (there's a free exporter somewhere that exports everything, xsi's, bookmarks, settings, etc., or simply make note of them and reinstall them), and do a clean install and restore bookmarks and addons.

    Thanks, I just did, running better than my 3.0.5 version. In fact, I'm gonna try it with RealJock for a while, seems even faster than Safari on my Mac with OS 10.5.7. BTW, I never had the jpg problem with the older version. Here's the download link for Mac, with additional links there for other systems.

    I upgraded to 3.5 after getting a message from Mozilla citing the upgrade necessary due to security issues.

    Well, there's some discussion about a security bug in 3.5, but I'm not very concerned at the moment. Here's the piece in Computerworld:

    I've been using Safari 4.0.2, but Firefox 3.5 seems to load pages faster overall. And Safari had more troubles with video clips on some sites than Firefox 3.0 did.

    problems with things like that Red is, although they claim it can't do any damage, they haven't had it proven yet,, it's always best just to fix these things as quickly as possible.

    However, if you browse safely and don't visit malicious websites you should be comparatively safe from all manner of things.

    Hell, I ran windows for the last 5 years without so much as a anti-virus scanner and got nothing..

    I started using 3.5 when it first came out and I like it! However some of my plug-ins (like web developer) do not work with it .. also here are the release notes for 3.5.1

    http://en-us.www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/3.5.1/releasenotes/

    if you are using color profiles ..
    release notes# Firefox 3.5 will only support color profiles as specified by ICC v2, later versions will add support for ICC v4 (see bug 463221)

    # Users viewing images using ICC v2 color profiles on monitors with wide gamut levels may find them to look more saturated (darker) than expected (see bug 497363)

    yup thats the reference, thats why its all fucked up here on my monitor, its 24 inches, hope they fix it soon, btw the problem was with FF 3.5 no FF3.0 so theres nothing to upgrade to icon_evil.gif my current version is 3.5.1, the bug is still there, sticky and frigging annoying.

    also web developer toolbar works perfectly for me, have no clue why its not working for you.

    Toldja it was your monitor... at least indirectly... kekekekeke! icon_twisted.gif

    I'm sure you've tried it already, but does everything work fine with other browsers? Windows picture and fax viewers?

    There's nothing you can do atm, except use older versions, I think. It's not like there's anything major added with 3.5 and 3.5.1

    You could just remove any icm profiles temporarily and adjust the monitor to you liking manually.
