It should work without the anchor and suffix. Perhapse the URL is not
actually that string?
* any (.*) at beginning or end is assumed, so are stripped away by
Squid config loader.
* the ^ anchor is only necessary to forbid sub-URL matches. eg URLs like:
* any characters within the URL which are special to regex are handled
as those *regex* commands. Not characters in the URL.
These characters may clash between regex and URL:
. ? ( ) [ ] - + * \
