It is workign fine now....it was not the fault of Fedora or Linux.....it was
becuse of our proxy server (ISA Server 2004). It turns out there is some kind

have to do this (on the ISA Server):
1. disable "Compression Filter"
2. disable "Caching Compressed Content Filter"
Once I did that, it worked like a charm.
