If this is the case, then it can easily be seen in the access log. There
should be a number of accesses from the squid server.

On which port are Squid running?
What ipfwadm rules are you using?

Recommended setup:
Squid running on port 3128
ipfwadm ruleset:
# Don't redirect our own traffic
ipfwadm -I -a accept -W lo
ipfwadm -I -a accept -S
ipfwadm -I -a accept -D
[repeated for every IP address the system has]
# Redirect port 80 to Squid
ipfwadm -I -a accept -P tcp -D 80 -r 3128
