You must have missed my previous message:

  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 do in Emacs to work around this.
  The Mozilla folks are still discussing how to fix it on their end.
