I am having a problem with loading most webpages, but not always.  I get this error:

> Content Encoding Error

I reported this in December on a GuixSD mailinglist (where I also
attached a screenshot).


Now I'm also seeing this on Parabola, so it may be an issue upstream.

I do not know if the work-around of setting network.http.accept-encoding to true works, because the problem occurres/ed now and then.  But in any case, it would be good to find the underlying reason.

Any insight on this issue?

This happens with IceCat 52.3.0 on both GuixSD and Parabola, as provided by the respective distributions.
