You need a VPN or similar encrypted tunnel for that use case. Use of
interception and Squid to direct traffic over the VPN can avoid ISP. But
just using the proxy to connect to an external server does not. The ISP
will just see regular HTTP happening on a different port.

Then the browser is not even using the proxy. That is probably the issue
right there.

Strange. "Error code 324 (net::ERR_EMPTY_RESPONSE)" is a Chrome error.
