I am incorporating some caching and compressing lines into the htaccess of a few sites to improve their webpagetest results. However on any site I place my htaccess code the two items “compress images” and “progressive jpegs” disappear and are replaced with one N/A square.
Any help with how to actually get an A on these two items would be appreciated (the idea is to show the test results to clients).

For first time byte we will simply recommend changing hosts from a shared hosting to a vps or dedicated, but other items we would really like to be able to show A’s.
Thanks for any information or help on this.
Edit - Here is the code I am putting into the htaccess if that helps any:
