Remember that Squid handles cacheable and uncacheable requests different.
Only requests that may be cached (and fetched from a cache) are sent
to parents. All else is sent directly as soon as possible. If you press
Reload, then the request falls into the first (not allowed to fetch from
a cache) and is sent directly.

You can't use inside_firewall. If you use inside_firewall then you
will get this message on all ftp requests outside the firewall.
(since squid requires a parent to fetch objects outside inside_firewall).
