In the way the documentation displays:

If it is a CONNECT request you are trying to redirect Squid is
outputting the page. Then well, browser bugs happen. We have been on at
them about it for more than a decade now. But it seems nobody wants to
touch the issue since there is also security vulnerabilities to navigate
around in the fix.

Anyway. The latest versions of Squid with SSL-Bump configured should be
able to get something to reach the user screen by decrypting the traffic
and injecting a deny_info "page" with 511 status. However it does
require that Squid be generating an error message, so SG probably still
can't do it as a redirect.
