Steps to reproduce


Repro Steps:

Here’s a sample that demonstrates the problem. The following two links do the exact same thing. Click on the “Click me” button on the page and the script fills the textbox. The second link, however, loads the script file in zip encoded format and fails to work in Internet Explorer. It works in other browsers and works in IE11 prior to recent security updates.

Expected Results:

If i source a script file, and the browser accepts gzip encoding (which ie11 does) - server returns script with content-encoding - gzip ; This should all work.

Actual Results:
