Lightroom Classic 9.0 Synced Album Color Management Broken in Web App

Color management is no longer functioning properly in the Web app and Shared Albums using LR Classic 9.0 on Windows 10 Version 1903 Build 18362 with FireFox 70.0.1. Raw files appear over-saturated and non-raw JPEG and TIFF files appear correct. Both file types appear over-saturated when in the Web app Edit module (Edit this photo).

I had a chance to investigate this further and it appears both the LR Web app and Shared Albums no longer work with custom camera profiles created using the ColorChecker Passport software or DNG Profile Editor. Instead the Adobe Standard camera profile is substituted. This was verified by exporting a raw file with Adobe Standard camera profile assigned to TIFF format and then uploading the TIFF file and the original raw file with a custom camera profile assigned. When the two are compared in the Web app or a Shared Album they appear identical, but inside LR the two are clearly different. LR Desktop 3.0 created albums do NOT exhibit this issue.

When viewed in the Web app's Develop module (Edit this photo) all images (raw, JPEG, TIFF) appear over-saturated on my wide gamut monitor. Changing the monitor's color mode to sRGB corrects the issue, which indicates the Web app Develop module is not using the display profile and assumes it to be sRGB. However, both the Web app and Shared Album Grid and Loupe view appear to use the display profile as JPEG , TIFF and raw image files with an Adobe camera profile assigned (i.e. Adobe Standard, etc.) display correct color. Both LR Classic 9.0 and LR Desktop 3.0 exhibit this behavior.

Not sure I fully understand what's wrong. What is the "LR Web App"? But I can state, on Mac OS, with a raw, with a custom .DCP profile, what I see in Library and Web Module match. Using a wide gamut display.

The issue here is that 3rd party and custom created Camera/Lens profiles applied in Lightroom Classic are not synced, which is a limitation of Lightroom Classic.

If you were to do the same in Lightroom CC, the custom/3rd party profile is synced for you account.
I'll follow up with the Lightroom Classic team to see if there's at least a way to add a warning about this scenario.
