   If you are using Squid 1.2beta and Netscape 4.x then you MUST use
   different server names for your HTTP and Security (SSL) proxy. This
   is due to a bug in Netscape4.0x that may cause https requests to be
   sent in plain text to a Squid 1.2beta proxy server.

FWIW, this bug is still present in the latest Netscape beta, 4.5 PR1.
I reported this bug to them several months ago. Guess it's time to
report it again.
