Yes, the problem seems to be only Netscape related, but the bizarre thing is
that it doesn't occur with Netscape on the notebook (same version).

As I said, it's a Netscape thing. Curiously this morning the UF page was
happily coming from squid but inpho was being fetched from the site.
Anyway, as previously mentioned I've fudged squid's configuration file and
