Have you checked and seen that Firefox indeed get the exact same data? If so,
do you have any theory how it can decide that the what-seems-to-be-the-final
chunk isn't actually the final one?

A little work-around to get the data without chunks would be to make the
request using HTTP 1.0, with the -0 / --http1.0 option.
