I suspect that the web server is doing an extra gzip compression of the content if the browser presents an Accept-Encoding:gzip header. It looks like the server is responding with a Content-Encoding:gzip header, which means the browser should decompress it on the fly, but it looks like that's not happening for whatever reason. Disabling gzip compression of non-plain text MIME types on the server should fix the problem.

Apparently most browsers not do the decompression because of a workaround of a bug where servers would erroneously serve .gz files with the headers "Content-Encoding: gzip" and "Content-Type: application/gzip".

Luiz, I'm not sure why you're not seeing this behavior across any of your browsers. In any case, setting the server to not compress .gz files should fix it for everyone.
