This is a known Firefox bug, see


This bug has nothing to do with Emacs; opening file:///foo/bar.html.gz
in the Firefox address bar fails to uncompress, whereas
http://foo/bar.html.gz uncompress properly.  I don't think there's
anything we can (or should) do in Emacs to work around this.  The
Mozilla folks are still discussing how to fix it on their end.
