webpagetest VS yslow - chrome tools - namon96 - 08-18-2012 09:34 AM

Hi all, I have a page on my mobilo toys website

This page passes the test for gzip encode with webpagetest but fails with yslow and chrome tools

What am I missing here

Stuff's coming through gzipped for me (and YSlow/Page Speed report it that way too).

Thanks for the reply these are the results from YSlow and Chrome.
The stylesheets are at gogrid, I've also selected to compression enabled on the gogrid servers.

The result I get from YSlow

Grade F on Compress components with gzip

There are 7 plain text components that should be sent compressed

Any chance you have a proxy or antivirus somewhere on your local network that would be disabling the accept-encoding header? Antivirus in particular is known to do that.

Doh! Well there you have it wasting time for a problem that didn't exist - yep the firewall.

Thanks again for your help Pat
