Hi,

Maybe you'are encountering what Steve Souders call the "Turtle Tapping".

You need to check the Accept-Encoding HTTP header from the browser side
(need to be: Accept-Encoding: gzip, deflate). In some cases (in order to
analyse faster the content of the traffic), web-proxies and Antivirus are
mangled the Accept-Encoding HTTP header.
