This is my guess.

It doesn't have anything to do with your users browser. Its between
Squid and the origin server.

I'd bet their server is on a Windows NT platform. When the server
gets too busy it refuses connections by sending a TCP reset. I've
seen MS servers do this before, and it didn't matter whether I was
using Squid, telnet port 80, etc., and it didn't matter what OS
I was connecting from.
