I am finding that images copied from Firefox erroneously have Firefox's color correction applied. This does not happen if you save the image as a file and upload the file.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Set Firefox to non-default color management, eg:
2. Right click on an image -> copy.
3. Paste this image somewhere, eg,, Gimp
Expected results: images should look the same.
Actual results: pasted image has been affected by color management.

I have tested other applications (Chrome and Gimp) and they do not exhibit this behaviour.

Version 86.0b6 (64-bit) Arch Linux
