Squid *is* sending the error page response back. However, there were some
security vulnerabilities and at least one virus discovered a while back
involving the way the popular browsers display such pages. So they disabled

The 307 status code was created for non-GET redirects. Use that and as the
browsers gain support for it your site will start to work. Hopefully some
may already.
