Photoshop CS6 Win 7 x64: disappearing color profile when saved for the Web

Hello.
I have a problem with the “Save for the Web” results using Photoshop CS6 running on Win 7 x64.
My photos are already in 8 bits and in sRGB and when I save for the Web I check the option “embed color profile”, uncheck “convert to sRGB”, metadata to “copyright and contact info”.

When I open the resulting photos in Photoshop, everything is fine as it recognizes the embedded color profile. Same thing when I open directly (from the file browser => “open with”) these files in Firefox, Safari or Chrome: the colors are correct.
Now, when I right-click on a file in the Win Explorer (file browser) and look its properties, the line about the color profile is blank, as if there wasn't any.
To illustrate, here are three screenshots from Windows' file browser => right-ckick on the file => properties => details:


This doesn't bother me but the problem appears on my Website created with Joomla and using for the display a module, Infyway's Responsive Image Gallery, which is color profile aware: when navigating in a gallery containing images saved with “Save for the Web” option, colors are ok with Firefox which considers a file without embedded CP as being sRGB but over-saturated in Safari and Chrome. An example is at the following page: http://www.ericgabaphoto.com.br/index...

This doesn't happen when navigating in a gallery containing images saved with the “Save as” option. An example is at the following page: http://www.ericgabaphoto.com.br/index...
The fact I can't see the profile through the Win Explorer makes me think Joomla's module doesn't either.

May be Photoshop uses a different way to embed the CP in the “Save for the Web” case which isn't understood by all software.
Thanks for the help.

Try it in Photoshop CC - that sounds a bit like a bug that was fixed a while back.

Thank you Chris for the answer.
So it's known bug. Just wondering why it wasn't fixed in that version.

I'm not positive that it is a known bug, but it does sound like something fixed in CC.
