The first step is to upgrade your Squid. TLS hijacking is a very 
volatile area and things are changing often 3.5.3 is a very old Squid 
release now.
  The current Squid-3 version is 3.5.27.

TLS does not have URLs. So this will never work.

You need to use ssl::server_name ACLs instead of dstdomain for this 

ALso, maybe ssl::server_name_regex for the regex patterns *if* any are 
relevant after considering how URLs dont exist.

You are doing peek first, which should make the SNI details available 
for ssl::server_name* to use.

Remove that DONT_VERIFY_PEER flag. It is only hiding problems from *you* 
the admin - while letting them still be problems for all your clients.

This is a bit dangerous. Any non-intermediates Ca certs in that PEM file 
will allow remote hijacking of your proxy outbound connections by 
clients of that root CA.

That said,   you already completely disabled *ALL* verify checks on the 
server certs with DONT_VERIFY_PEER - so anyone can already hijack your 
traffic without needing to go to the trouble of even having their certs 
signed. All they need is some garbage bytes that use the correct X.509 
_format_ used by certs.

After you upgrade your Squid, change that to 
sslproxy_foreign_intermediate_certs which will only load intermediate 
certs for use. If your upgraded Squid does not accept that directive it 
is still too old to use safely for SSL-Bump.

What are the http_port and https_port lines you are using?

You can only block domains like that if;
  a) you are using explicit proxy and the client sent a CONNECT with a 
domain name, or
  b) its IP address rDNS points back to the domain you are naming in the 
ACL, or
  c) the client sends TLS SNI details *and* your ssl_bump rules make 
that detail available to Squid (eg. peek).

for details on what SSL-Bump actually does at each step of the TLS 

Pay particular attention to what info is available at each "step" - and 
also what is *not* available.

The regex pattern is looking for an absolute-form URL which will never 
exist in any CONNECT messages, since they always use authority-form URL.

That first http_access line might work *if* you already bumped the HTTPS 
traffic. The second never will.

Same issues mentioned above about the facebook dstdomain ACL as to when 
these dstdomain ACLs will match.

Except that here the "deny foo" lines that go first without mentioning 
CONNECT will match all the same things as the CONNECT line would - 
meaning they already block all traffic even stuff not using CONNECT 
tunnels. So the mention of CONNECT in these lines is pointless, and you 
can completely remove the lines which use it without changing the proxy
