Squid is a proxy and so there are always two connections in a "working"

a) browser to squid
b) squid to server (or parent proxy)

If the parent proxy is not seeing the squid address, then your private
browser is not seeing the private squid. The one "important" piece of
information is that the squid box is a gateway. From what you have said,
the browser isn't configured to use the private squid and the private
squid is just routing the packets to its parent.
