That's usually because your domain is on their "compatibility view list". Most of the agents should automatically update the list but it's possible that some are out of date. Do you know if used to be on it and was removed at some point (or is still on it)?

I didn't know that WPT was maintaining a list by specific domains. What do we have to do to get,, off the compatibility list. We realize that performance in IE7 is going to be worse, but we're focusing on what it does in IE8+, FF.

Having a tough time explaining the swings in performance due to the inconsistent application of the IE7 string.
