I can confirm ERR_CONTENT_DECODING_FAILED for https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/e/e7/Partizan-Medal-1-ribbon.png/40px-Partizan-Medal-1-ribbon.png (Firefox 52.0.2). Other above mentioned pictures are working fine for me now, though.

Confirming that the map is back to normal for me (finally).

For me, the eror still persists (maps.wikimedia.org). Exactly at zoom #7 (more or less is OK). However not all Burma is blue anymore. The far north and the south (approximately south from Yangon) are good.

Maybe I am ignorant, but what motivation stands behind the (new) editor (NWE), which must be started/executed from VE mode? If the NWE should be the future replacement of the old wikitext editor, I would expect the same usability as for the old editor (i. e. it should be executable/editable independently of the VE). We can safely presume that a big chunk of the load time is caused by the need to load the page in the VE mode.
