Unfortunately, some files that claim to be just images aren't. By default the Proxomitron does not filter images. This filter forces filtering.

Your choice. Does your browser refuse to automatically open incorrectly typed image files? Do you need the browser to see the remote server's headers?



I think (Working from memory and your post. IOW, reader beware and confirm!):

The "content-length" header is removed by the Proxomitron. The correct "content-length" is unknown. The Proxomitron doesn't keep a running byte count of the filtering results.

The "Transfer-Encoding: chunked" header is added by the Proxomitron.

Handycache, being a caching proxy, is adding the "content-length" header.
