Change browser
Safari supports well the ICC profiles, and shows the colors correctly

Realize this is old, but not sure the solution is that simple.  I've noticed the same problem.  I also noticed that any other website I upload to, including similar print on demand websites, don't have the same issue.  I also noticed that photos I uploaded to FAA a while ago did not have that problem.  I found an old photo on FAA that looked correct to me.  Screenshotted it.  Re-uploaded the photo, with the same identical JPG that I originally uploaded, and the color changed into the duller color you mention.  At that point, I decided it was something on their end, and paid no more attention.  Unfortunate, but I'm not going to alter my photos colormaps so it looks better on their website.

I'm on FAA and there have been numerous threads on this in their forum.  The problem is that their preview images aren't correctly tagged with a color space, i.e. sRGB or Adobe.  When browsers see an image without a color space tag, they skip color management altogether - meaning that if your system has a display profile, it's ignored.  So those of us with calibrated and/or high-gamut displays see colors that are 'off' and oversaturated.

Like many problems on FAA, it never gets fixed or even acknowledged. This one has been there for at least several months now. When people complain on the FAA forum, they get suggestions to check their display calibration or try a different browser, which only adds to the confusion.

The problem affects the web site preview images, NOT their prints.  So if you try to modify your images to make them look 'right' you're guaranteeing that the prints will be 'wrong'.
