Unhappy A unknown error accesing https pages... Would be the squid.conf guilty??

Hi to all... I've recently installed MNF and all works perfectly... In fact I configured proxy manual and works so fine, and like I can't put this like transparent proxy I just redirect petitions to eth1 masquerading to eth0 and Internet Explorer without proxy configuration works so fine (of course without the proxy cache) just adding this two lines to rc.local file

iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o eth0 -j MASQUERADE

echo 1 >/proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward

But the only problem that I have with either the original MNF squid.conf, or my personal squid.conf is that I can access all the web pages or ports especified in shorewall and the others that aren't not specified (I mean the default rules and other that I added), BUT I can't access all the https pages that uses 443 port (a useful example is this web page )
So I added a especific rule to permit conections trough 443 port, I modified the squid.conf and put all and Still goes on this message (I hate it)
"ERROR The requested URL could not be retrieved

While trying to retrieve the URL:

The following error was encountered:

Connection Failed
The system returned:

(111) Connection refused

The remote host or network may be down. Please try the request again.

So the unique problem is that if I configure Internet Explorer trought my proxy I can't access neither Hotmail web page (or any secure webpage) nor login to MSN Messenger. At the end of this message I put the squid.conf that I'm using now so if anybody can HELLLP ME (that I'm desesperated) I'll be so thankfull...
