Repeater and content-encoding

Martin | Last updated: Nov 06, 2015 06:37PM UTC

I think I have two issues: The first is that the settings in proxy for encoding/decoding compression don't seem to apply to repeater. The second is that if I send a HEAD method request via repeater, it tries to uncompress an empty body, removes the content-encoding header, then sets the content-length to zero. It should probably ignore a response to a HEAD request... #loveyoulongtime

Repeater has its own setting for performing automatic decompression of responses, which lives on the Repeater menu. Agreed that there isn't any sense modifying HEAD responses in that manner. We've added a story for that change to our backlog.
