I can fetch the header of websites via IPv6 but not the webpage, why?

As I said:

1) "I have a native IPv6 connection on my Desktop behind my router." -> So
there is no tunnel. Only native IPv6 that the Hungarian telekom.hu gives.
2) We will try out setting manually the MSS to 1392, hopefully that could
be a good workaround.
3) We will try out the site: http://netalyzr.icsi.berkeley.edu/

I will post the status here later, Thanks!
