Firefox and Gimp can both be configured to not use the display profile 
(ie ICC_PROFILE atom), but a user-configured profile. In that case 
CompICC may not be able do the right thing, because the user actively 
chose to shoot himself in the foot :)
Per-application display profile settings don't make much sense anyway imho.

I don't know which is the default for gimp when you activate display 
compensation (use system profile or user defined profile), but Firefox 
actually had the "use system profile" default when I last checked (and 
works nicely with CompICC in that case as far as my experience with it
