I owe you an apology for being a doubting Thomas!

I just tried this again with IE4 and it worked like a charm, first time,
perfectly. The culprit is Netscape 4.05!

I'm just off to let Netscape know about this fault, and then I might go and
buy a hair-shirt :-)

Thanks for your time!

Squid does NOT support SSL, it supports SSL tunneling using the CONNECT
If you get erronous CONNECT requests then this is a client problem, not
a Squid problem. A proper CONNECT request for
"" is "CONNECT"
You can't use a redirector to redirect requests to https, unless you
redirect them using a HTTP redirect (telling the client to use https
Squid 1.X has quite limited forwarding capabilities for SSL. I'd
recommend you to look into Squid 2 to solve your firewall + local domain
