    In IE7 Beta 3, when I try and access the home page of Wikipedia,

    I get a pop up "Do you want to save this file, or find a program online to
    open it?" offering "Unknown File Type" with Find, Save and Cancel.

    Find gives me:

    MIME Type: application/x-gzip-compressed
    Description: UnKnown
    Windows does not recognize this MIME type.

    and so I cannot access this page?

    Why is this and what do I need to do to fix it?

    I've definitely the same problem with .vbd files.
    IE4, 5 and 6 properly opened them, while IE7 doesn't.

    At the present, no solution.

    I am also having this problem with Wikipedia for some entries. It seems to
    fluctuate. Perhaps Wikipedia is only compressing some pages or compressing
    some with a different version of gzip?
