Well... You don't need to restart Firefox. But it does not hurt. If this
continues to be a problem put:

visible_hostname localhost (notice the underline)

at the end of squid.conf and restart squid. It has to read the change.

There is also a way to hide your info from the sites you visit. Someone,
I think it is Frank(?), has a really nice page on using privoxy and
squid together to do that. That's what I do. I had not seen his page
before but what I knew, what he wrote about, was something I know from
way back in Junkbuster days. Maybe '82?
